During practice sessions and group lessons I use the concepts from The Prague School of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. The founder of this method is Professor Pavel Kolar, Ph.D. (More on www.rehabps.com, www.dns-cz.com)
Not only is this method cutting-edge rehabilitation, but according to Professor Kolář, training with this method successfully treats muscle and joint pain. This method leads to a gentle and effective return to an active life and an improvement in athletic performance. In general, the basic aim of the method is to improve stability of the spinal segments and to activate the deep trunk stabilizers, by becoming physical aware of the body’s neutral positioning, and then realizing the most natural and economic sequence of muscular engagement involved in movement from a static to a dynamic position.
Principles of the method
The techniques of DYNAMIC NEUROMUSCULAR STABILIZATION influence muscles in their postural and locomotor functions. The method is concerned with general principles of physiotherapy.
Normal muscle strengthening is based primarily on anatomical features. Strengthening exercises are then derived from the origin and insertion of the muscle. This principle is seen in the construction of most fitness machines used in gyms.
In the development of muscle strength, when thinking about the influence of his weakness and muscle overload (joints, bones, soft tissues) can not be based only on its origin and insertion, but also its integration into the biomechanical chains. You can not derive only from the anatomical context but also control processes CNS (central programs). It should be noted, for example, if we exercise the pectoral muscles are always activated the muscles that stabilize their shrouds, ie, back muscles, diaphragm, abdominal muscles, etc. This feature is automatic for most people a very limited volitional controlled manner, not to mention the deep muscles which are postural (stabilization, solidification) function is particularly important.
In case of insufficiency at strengthening segment (s)-body parts-we are talking about postural instability. Wrong recruit muscles in stabilizing the individual automatically and subconsciously fixes performed in all movements and exercises. The result is a stereotypical hazing, which is a major factor in a number of etiopathogenetic driving disorders.
To avoid overload of soft tissues and bone, the muscle activity, respectively. central nervous system and soft tissue to ensure that the reinforcing segment (s) is done in the centering position of the joint (in our terminology also talking about the neutral position). A prerequisite is a balance between the muscles throughout the biomechanical chain and also between spent stabilizing muscle strength and size of external forces. This active approach to client DNS technique can successfully develop.
