Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a developmental kinesiology approach

Scar Tissue

Scars are a natural part of the body's healing process. A scar results from the biologic process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues. Most wounds, except for very minor ones, result in some degree of scarring.

Scars form when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue. Scars form after a wound is completely healed.


Collagen (along with elastin) is a component of fascia which provides strength and stability during mechanical stress. As a hydrophilic tissue, it absorbs water to form a colloidal state (4th state of water), a gel. This provides bounce, enhances nutrient and gaseous exchange, waste removal and information exchange.

When fascia is restricted, the distance between collagen and elastin, a hydrophobic tissue, is reduced. This reduces the bound water in collagen, making fascia less mobile, more dense and subsequently more restricted.

Each myofascial release technique requires at least 5 minutes to restore the ground substance to a more soluble consistency. Cross-linkages are broken down and fascial planes realign. Recent studies have shown that TGF beta responsible for fascial tonicity, a potent stimulator of myofibroblast contraction, is released.

Myofascial release can also influence the ANS (autonomic nervous system), creating a mental and manual shift from the sympathetic fight and flight response to parasympathetic tone counteracting TGFbeta thus improve immune response.
