Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

The Prague School and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

Rehabilitation Prague School


The nervous system establishes programs that control human posture, movement and gait. This ‘motor control’ is largely established during the first critical years of life. Therefore, the “Prague School” emphasizes neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order 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/physiatrists, all of whom were giants in the 20th Century rehabilitation movement: Professors’ Vaclav Vojta, Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda, and Frantisek Vele.

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

The movement activity enhancement after the Covid 19 pandemics

International cooperation:  Rehabilitation Prague School, Charles University - 2nd Medical Faculty in Prague, Matej Bel University in Banska Bystrica, Slovakia and Opole University of Technology, Poland.

Within the grant project, a scientific article was published highlighting the insufficient physical activity of university students in the post-Covid 19 pandemic period in all the observed regions, i.e., in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland. The project included a competition for smart watches.
