Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)

The nervous system controls human posture, movement and gait. This motor control is largely developed during the first crucial years of life. Therefore, the Prague School emphasizes neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control to assess and restore dysfunction of the locomotor system and associated syndromes.

The Prague School of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine was established by key neurologists and physiatrists, all of whom were giants in the 20th-century rehabilitation movement: Professors’ Vaclav Vojta, Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda, and Frantisek Vele.

Using the groundbreaking neurodevelopmental and rehabilitation principles described by these mentors, Pavel Kolar has organized the next generation of clinical protocols, which are designed to restore and stabilize locomotor function. This new rehabilitation approach is called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).

DNS certified exercise trainers are health, fitness, and sport professionals who have satisfactorily completed the required DNS Exercise Training coursework consisting of DNS Exercise Courses I, II and III. They have passed the practical testing associated with their training and have demonstrated competency in both knowledge and skill execution in applying the DNS exercise assessment and training principles. They have earned the title Certified DNS Exercise Trainer (DNSET) issued by the Prague School of Rehabilitation, Prague, Czech Republic.
