Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (COURSE A)

The nervous system establishes programs that control human locomotion, which is comprised of posture and movement. This “motor control” is largely established during the first critical years of life. Based upon the principles of developmental kinesiology, i.e. the neurophysiologic aspects of the maturing movement system on which the Prague School was established., the scope of clinical rehabilitation options for many of our neuro-musculo-skeletal patients has been expanded. The DNS approach involves every component of the movement system (i.e. muscles, joints, discs, nerves, and soft tissue) by stimulating movement control centers in the brain through activation of ideal inborn movement stereotypes. This, in turn, helps restore the structural and postural alignment of the body’s neuro-musculoskeletal system by evoking the global motor patterns. Global motor patterns form the foundation of human movement and represent genetically predetermined elements for uprighting. These patterns are essential for control of posture and stability of the spine-the pivotal center of the entire movement system through the life of the individual. This complex approach is exciting and “cutting-edge” as it provides a window into the complexity and plasticity of the CNS and its effect on the musculoskeletal system and vice-versa.
