The DNS approach to assessment and treatment focuses on the restoration and optimization of functional movement patterns, which is based upon developmental kinesiological.

What is DNS?

DNS is based on the principles of developmental kinesiology, which recognizes the importance of early motor development in establishing efficient movement patterns.  It is a concept out of Prague School of Rehabilitation

DNS aims to address various musculoskeletal conditions and improve overall movement quality by reactivating the deep stabilizing muscles and restoring proper coordination between different muscle groups. This technique emphasizes the activation of the core muscles, such as the diaphragm, pelvic floor, and deep spinal stabilizers.

Carly is the only exercise trained DNS provider in the Netherlands.

Why do the exercises resemble baby movements?

One unique aspect of DNS is its emphasis on incorporating movements based on a baby’s developmental stages. This approach recognizes that these early movements are fundamental building blocks for proper neuromuscular development. By utilizing these primal movement patterns in therapy, you can tap into your innate ability to move efficiently and effectively.

Exercises may include breathing and stabilization, rolling, planking, standing, and then walking.

Your visit

DNS concepts are incorporated into each visit.  During the initial exam, you will be screened for faulty movement patterns. Then the treatment involves a combination of spinal and extremity chiropractic adjustments, manual therapy, and prescribed DNS-based exercises. We will go over the exercises together in the appointment and you will receive videos and instructions through an app.  This combination provides long lasting results to heal your pain at the source. You will always receive personalized attention and quality care to help you reach your goals.
