Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization® (DNS)

What is Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization® (DNS)?

Core stability is necessary for optimal performance and it is not achieved purely by adequate strength of abdominals, spinal extensors, gluteals or any other musculature; rather, core stabilization is accomplished through precise coordination of these muscles and intra‐abdominal pressure regulation by the central nervous system (CNS).

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization® (DNS) is a manual and rehabilitative approach to optimize movement based upon the principle that development of human motor function in early childhood is genetically pre‐determined and follows a predictable pattern (developmental kinesiology). These motor patterns or programs are formed as the CNS matures; enabling the infant to control posture, achieve erect posture against gravity, and to move purposefully through muscular activity.

Understanding developmental kinesiology provides a framework to appreciate the regional interdependence and the inter‐linking of the skeleton, joints and muscles during movement and the importance of training both the dynamic and stabilizing function of muscles.

The DNS® approach provides functional tools to assess and activate the intrinsic spinal stabilizers in order to optimize the movement system for both pre‐habilitation and rehabilitation of injuries and performance.
