If you haven't attended a DNS course you may have some misconceptions about what it entails. DNS uses the blueprint of infant development to inform optimal postural stabilization, movement, and gait. This blueprint is what we call a neurodevelopmental approach to assessing, rehabilitating, restoring, and optimizing human movement. We reference and use developmental positions to improve, optimize and train human movement, but DNS is not about rolling around like a baby.
"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." www.rehabps.com
DNS is not a technique; it is not a protocol. It is a lens through which we can judge the quality of postural stabilization and a reliable marker as to the efficacy of our interventions that aim to influence it. DNS provides a system of assessing the quality of postural stabilization and provides a strategic, comprehensive approach to restoring and training it.
