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 Effect of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation on Core Strength: A Literature Review

DNS method is mostly used to strengthen the core muscles. 

It has proven to be more effective than many other core stabilisation methods.

It can help with a wide range of neurological and musculoskeletal issues.

Sports rehabilitation is one of its principal applications.

4  exercise sets for patients give specific instructions on combining individual exercises 

into flow series.

From the first to the fourth set, the difficulty of the exercise gradually increases 

Each set is 15-20 min long; 66minutes in total
