Barefoot in Boston now available on Amazon.com

“The residents who live here, according to the parable, began noticing increasing numbers of drowning people caught in the river’s swift current and so went to work inventing ever more elaborate technologies to resuscitate them. So preoccupied were these heroic villagers with rescue and treatment that they never thought to look UPSTREAM to see who was pushing the victims in.”

DNS Course B

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Course "B"

The “Prague School of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine” was established by keyneurologists/physiatrists, all of whom were giants in the 20th century rehabilitation era i.e. Karel Lewit and the late Professors Vaclav Vojta, Vladimir Janda & Frantisek Vele.  Based on groundbreaking neurodevelopmental and rehabilitation principles by these men, Professor Pavel Kolar has successfully integrated the work of his predecessors in proposing the underlying neurodevelopmental mechanism for how the movement system develops hand-in-hand with CNS maturation.  This complex approach is “cutting-edge” in that it provides a window into provides a window into the complexity and plasticity of the CNS and its effect on the movement system.  The DNS approach can be used in the rehabilitation of a myriad of neurologic, musculoskeletal pain syndromes as well as performance athletic training.

Course Description

The nervous system establishes programs that control human locomotion that includes posture and movement.  This critical “motor control” is largely established during the first years of life.   Based upon the principles of neurodevelopmental kinesiology, i.e. the neurophysiologic aspects of the maturing movement system on which the Prague School was established, the scope of clinical rehabilitation options for many of our neurologic and musculoskeletal pain patients have been expanded.  The DNS approach involves every component of the movement system (i.e. muscles, joints, nerves and soft tissue by stimulating movement control centers in the brain through activation of ideal inborn movement stereotypes.  This, in turn helps restore the  structural and postural alignment of the body’s neuro-musculo-skeletal system by evoking the global motor patterns.  Global motor patterns form the foundation of human movement and represent genetically predetermined elements for uprighting and equilibrium.  These patterns are essential for the control of posture and dynamic stability of the spine through the lifespan of the individual. Participants in this course will be introduced to the application of these principles.
