Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a developmental kinesiology approach, based on the theories that development of human motor function in early childhood is genetically pre‐determined and follows a predictable pattern. These motor patterns or programs are formed as the central nervous system (CNS) matures, enabling the infant to control posture, achieve erect posture against gravity, and to move purposefully via muscular activity.

The developer of DNS is Professor Pavel Kolar, PT, PhD, a Czech physiotherapist who has been influenced by the “greats” of Prague School of Manual Medicine, including Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda, Vaclav Vojta and Frantisek Vele.


A key premise of the DNS approach is that every joint position depends on stabilizing muscle function and coordination of both the local and distant muscles in order to ensure neutral or centered position of joints in the kinetic chain. The quality of this coordination is critical for joint function and influences not only local, but also regional and global anatomical and biomechanical parameters in the kinetic chain.

The ultimate strategy is to “train the brain” to maintain central control, joint stability and ideal quality of movement that is achieved through guidance from the clinician. Eventually, through repetition of the exercises, the central control establishes an automatic model that becomes a fundamental part of everyday movement and skills. Integration of an ideal pattern of stabilization in sport activities would not only reduce the risk of injuries and secondary pain syndromes resulting from overloading, but may also improve sport performance.

DNS can be used for everyone, from the elite athlete, infants and those with intervertebral disc problems. Please note that DNS is rehabilitation exercise based, looking at the ideal posture from a developmental perspective and muscle cooperation for ideal joint loading (ideal motor stereotypes).
