What is Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization?

Dynamic neuromuscular stabilization (DNS) has gained considerable attention for its effectiveness in improving movement patterns, enhancing athletic performance, and promoting overall functional stability.

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization is a treatment method rooted in the principles of developmental kinesiology. It emphasizes the significance of early motor patterns and their influence on the neuromuscular system throughout life.

DNS practitioners recognize that optimal movement patterns are established during infancy and can be disrupted due to injury, trauma, or faulty postural habits. DNS seeks to restore these fundamental movement patterns to enhance overall stability and function. Some of the world's best athletes, including Roger Federer, use DNS. 

Three Key Contributions of DNS

1.  Diaphragm Position and Function 

The diaphragm is the muscle within your body that separates your abdominal cavity and chest cavity. The diaphragm is the primary muscle involved in respiration and is also the primary muscle needed to have a strong core and a stable spine. For us to be strong and athletic, we need proper diaphragm function.

2. Joint Centration 

Joint centration refers to having the joints in our body in an optimal position. This creates optimal load transfer between bones in our body and protects structures from injury. 

3. Multi-Sensory Integration 

The systems within our body are very closely connected. Correct sensation is the foundation for good quality movement. If we are unable to properly interpret our environment, such as our feet being unable to fully feel the ground, we are unable to move to our best ability. The assessment of sensory function is very significant in rehabilitation and should be part of a routine patient exam.
