Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization - Clinical Course A
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) emphasizes neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order to assess and restore locomotor system and associated functionality losses. Global motor patterns form the foundation of human movement, being essential to ensure the dynamic stability through the lifespan of the individual. Participants in this course will be introduced to the application of these principles.
1. Identify and describe key milestones in human development;
2. Explain and demonstrate biomechanics of homologous, ipsilateral and contralateral postural-locomotion patterns, closed and opened kinematic chains, stepping forward and supporting function;
3. Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns;
4. Integrate exercise options based on DNS functional tests and developmental positions;
5. Integrate DNS approach in your regular practice, including patient education;
6. Cover DNS basics application in sport training;
7. Optimally prepare students for the next level of training (Clinical Course B).
(1) Developmental Kinesiology, Ontogenesis – Basic Principles;
(2) Developmental Stages in the 1st year of life – Physiological & Pathological Devel-opment;
(3) Stabilization of Spine, Trunk and Pelvis in Sagittal Plane, Breathing stereotype (ideal and pathological models);
(4) Stabilizing system of the spine: DNS postural tests (assessment principles).
(5) Basic postural stabilization assessment and treatment principles;
(6) Postural stabilization: basic supine positions corresponding with developmental po-sitions assessment and treatment/self-treatment principles: theory and demonstration;
(7) Postural stabilization: basic supine positions corresponding with developmental po-sitions (hands-on workshop).
(8) Postural stabilization: basic prone positions corresponding with developmental posi-tions theory and demonstration: assessment and treatment/self-treatment principles;
(9) Postural stabilization: basic prone positions corresponding with developmental posi-tions (hands-on workshop);
(10) Postural stabilization: demonstration of higher positions corresponding with de-velopment between 3-14 months. Intro to DNS course B.
