Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Pediatric Kolar modul A and B
These DNS courses are based on neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, muscle physiology and kinesiology with an emphasis on diagnostics
ABOUT DYNAMIC NEUROMUSCULAR STABILIZATION:
Much attention has been given in recent years to the development, maintenance and decline of functional stability of the locomotor system. Indeed, emerging research has proven the existence of the deep, or core, stabilizing muscles and their impact in controlling safe joint motion. This is especially true for the joints of the spinal column, where the complexity of the biomechanical and neurophysiological demands is phenomenal. With the increased understanding of functional stability have arisen new theories regarding the etiology of functional pathology and also of effective treatment methods to restore stability. Unfortunately, these techniques have yielded less than satisfactory results for many frustrated clinicians. Some methods, although based on sound principles, have been criticized as impractical.
It is during this period that a new method of intrinsic locomotor system stabilization has arisen to dramatically gain the attention of rehabilitation specialists. Pavel Kolar, PaedDr., Ph.D. has indeed spawned a new manual approach to activate the intrinsic system and achieve exciting levels of improved function in a remarkably brief period. Based upon the principles of developmental kinesiology, the neurophysiological aspects of the maturing locomotor system on which the Prague school was established, he has expanded the scope of clinical options in an exciting new direction. Attendees to the course will be introduced to these methods.
One of the most exciting aspects of the course is that this method describes the first new manual approach to the treatment of radicular syndromes since Cox and McKenzie did so decades ago. The success of this method has gained a great deal of interest among clinicians around the world.

locomotor system in adulthood.
Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic
functional DNS tests in children.
Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies.
Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.
DNS principles for baby handling in positions that corresponds to developmental positions of the
baby age 0-7M. Devices used for carrying babies, yes or no, how and why?

After the DNS Pediatric 1 course participants should be able to assess the spontaneous locomotor
function of a child and distinguished between physiological and pathological movement pattern. The
emphasis is put on assessment of quality of a movement and assessment of the basic primitive reflexes.
Course Goals and Description
Review of developmental kinesiology covered in DNS Pediatric course part 1, review of red
flags in development, distinguish physiological and pathological development (cases).
Development of children between 2-6 years of age.
Demonstration of babies: Be able to recognize ideal and disturbed locomotor patterns and
determine developmental age of the babies.
Baby handling – review of the principles described in pediatric course part I (0-7M). Handling

Handling of physiological and abnormally developing babies.
Postural analysis & testing of integrated spinal stabilization system– review of tests presented in

Exercise toddler and preschool children in higher differentiated positions.
Tests in pediatric clients – how to assess children in different age, modality (MABC, PDMS,
TUG, 6MWT etc.).

DNS assessment and treatment approach in children with lower extremity problems in all three
anatomical planes (anteverted hip, tip toeing, in toeing, genua valga and vara, flat foot).
