Jeff Cubos Talks Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization : Filling the Gaps

Posted by Boston Sports Medicine and Performance Group on Mon, Apr 9, 2012 @ 07:04 AM

by Jeff Cubos

 

It’s been over a year since I first began the Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization program. Since that initial “A” course, my clinical thought process has expanded exponentially through following up with the “B” and “C” courses, my privileged opportunity to visit Motol in Prague, and the day to day reflections of my current practice.

Well recently, I had the privilege of taking part in another DNS A course that was put forth by Michael Maxwell of Somatic Senses and taught by Alena Kobesova and Brett Winchester. This particular experience was quite special for me because not only was it local (hence no flight costs), but it provided me with the opportunity to share my experiences to date with many of my friends and colleagues who attended the course…including my wife.

I would say however, that the most beneficial aspect of being present was that it afforded me the opportunity to “fill in the gaps”.

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Course "A"

The “Prague School of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine” was established by key neurologists/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.
