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 organizedthe 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.

Based on DNS FIT KID  Journal Exercises

Abdominal wall tension increases using Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization principles in different postural positions.

The amount of abdominal wall tension significantly increases after verbal and manual instructions according to DNS. The greatest abdominal wall activation was achieved in the bear position.
