Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a new and unique approach to rehabilitation. It was developed by the faculty of the Prague School of Rehabilitation – the same institution that introduced the world to many of the modern rehabilitation and manual therapy principles used today.

Why is DNS different?

DNS is not a technique, but rather a novel way of understanding how we move and how things go wrong (i.e., injury).

The foundation of DNS is deeply rooted in the scientific principles of Developmental Kinesiology: the study of how our posture and movement matures as we develop from infants. Simply put, a DNS practitioner uses the knowledge of how our posture and movement develops, as a model that can be applied to finding out the cause and solution to movement/posture related problems later in life.

Most of the injuries that people experience are related to movement and posture. While our bodies develop with the ability to have good posture, and move well, we tend to lose these abilities as we get older.  Our modern lifestyles are the likely reason for this.

The knowledge of how movement/posture develops in the first place is extremely useful in determining how to regain ideal movement and posture, rehabilitate injuries and prevent future ailments. A DNS practitioner uses the principles of Developmental Kinesiology to design rehabilitation and injury prevention programs.

What is DNS used for?

Once again, DNS is not a specific technique, but a unique lens that helps identify posture/movement related problems that are the source of injuries/discomfort, and helps to delineate the best path to recovery and prevention.

DNS can be applied to the management and prevention of any musculoskeletal injury (i.e., injuries related to muscles, tendons, nerves, joints).

PROPEL’s condition-specific exercise programming is designed with DNS principles in mind.
