Course Description

Etiology of musculoskeletal pain, in particular back pain, is often evaluated from an anatomical andbiomechanical standpoint, and the influence of external forces (i.e. loading) acting on the spine. What is often missing is the evaluation of internal forces induced by the patient’s own musculature. The stabilizing function of muscles plays a critical and decisive postural role, which in turn, is dependent on the quality of central nervous system (CNS) control. Kolar’s approach to Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a new and unique approach explaining the importance of the neurophysiological principles of the movement system. The DNS encompasses principles of developmental kinesiology during the 1st year of the life; these principles define ideal posture, breathing stereotypes and functional joint centration from a “neurodevelopmental” paradigm. DNS presents a critical set of functional tests to analyze the quality of functional stability of the spinal and joint stabilizers, and to assist in finding the “key link” of dysfunction. The stabilization training approach is based on ontogenetic global posturallocomotor patterns. The primary goal is to optimize distribution of internal forces of the muscles acting on each segment of the spine and/or any other joint. In the DNS training concept, client education and participation are imperative to reinforce ideal coordination among all stabilizing muscles to achieve the best sport performance. DNS Sport Course attendees are advised how to start training of ideal postural-stabilization function in basic, i.e. the easiest positions and how to progress with the exercise by using more challenging positions, applying resistance and/or by adding limb movement to meet client’s specific requirements and sport goals. 

Course Objectives

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology.
  • Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and dysfunction of the locomotor system in adulthood.
  • Discuss and demonstrate the basis of human movement: support, stepping forward, the bio-mechanics of motor function, the verticalization process & functional joint centration in pos-tural development.
  • Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.
  • Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests.
  • Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions in supine, prone, low kneeling, oblique sit, and quadruped global movements.
  • Demonstrate how DNS corrective exercises can be integrated with other exercise strategies.

Speaker

Júlia Demeková, MPT Julia has been working as a physiotherapist at the Rehabilitation Clinic, University Hospital Motol, 2nd School of Medicine, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. She also acts as a lecturer at Charles University, 2nd School of Medicine teaching physical therapy to both students of physiotherapy undergraduate program and medical students.   Julia achieved Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy in 2007, Palacky University, Olomouc, Czech Republic. In 2006 and completed a course in Reflex Locomotion according to Vojta focusing on the treatment of adult patients. She has worked in the ‘Lipová the Spa’ at the out-patient unit focusing on treatment of overweight patients, coordinating the organization of the controlled movement therapy and dietetic restrictions. In 2006-2009 she acted as assisting instructor in Manual Medicine Courses.  Since 2009 she works as an active member at the Rehabilitation clinic, University Hopsital Motol in Prague, achieving an extensive experience with functional assessment and treatment of patients with various types of neurological, msk and orthopedic diagnoses also with pediatric clients. She works at both in- and out-patient departments at the Motol rehabilitation Clinic as well as at the Spinal Unit and Pain Management Center. Julia closely works under Professors Pavel Kolar’s supervision, becoming an expert in the DNS approach.  Julia has been a DNS instructor since 2010. She has been teaching the DNS courses in Czech Republic, Slovakia and other European countries and in North America.
