What is Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)?

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is an innovative rehabilitative approach to optimize the movement system based upon the scientific principles of developmental kinesiology.  DNS explores the stages of infant development from the fetal position to being upright. These positions are stored involuntarily in the central nervous system and can be accessed through optimal core stabilization, joint mobility, and stimulation of the reflex point. 

Often overuse, injuries, postural habits, or stress alter our normal movement patterns, which can lead to pain and dysfunction. DNS allows practitioners to assess and rehabilitate these altered patterns aiding in the restoration of functional movement and resolution of associated symptoms. 

The Treatment

I will work with the patient to identify the underlying dysfunctional pattern leading to loss of control and postural deviations. I will then choose the appropriate childhood development positions to best support the hips, shoulder, and spine. Joint mobilization and soft tissue manipulation are performed in order to facilitate these positions. The patient will then follow developmental progression in order to achieve higher positions in which support and stability are more demanding.
