What is DNS?
DNS is an Approach that believes the human locomotor (movement) system is based on the scientific principles of Developmental Kinesiology (DK). DK is the scientific understanding/guideline of how a normal baby matures in the neurophysiological aspect of our locomotor system. To put it in a nut shell, DK is a tool/guide used in DNS to compare an individual’s (at any age) stabilizing/movement pattern with the stabilization/movement developmental pattern of a healthy baby for assessment and treatment. DNS emphasizes that one cannot move healthily if one cannot stabilize well the segments of the body in the overall posture adopted.
DNS strongly advocates that HEALTHY and STRONG movements do NOT depend on merely the structures of the body (eg. muscles, bones, ligaments) but on the MOVEMENT SYSTEMS of the body (such as the Central Nervous System (Neuro) and the Muscular System) interacting efficiently to reach a ‘harmonious’ balance of interplay of muscles. It explains that this ‘Balance’ ensures that the relevant joints involved in the movement is then in an optimal and healthy position throughout the movement. This optimal position is called ‘Functional Joint Centration’. The quality of movement is always dependant on a stable support base.
The DNS Approach demonstrates that a Functional Joint Centration can only occur when the Integrated Spinal Stabilizing System (ISSS) is activated optimally. It is believed that faulty stabilizing habits can influence the skeletal formation of bones and joints in a growing child. In adulthood, a faulty ISSS can lead to enhanced degenerative changes at the bones and joints. It can also lead to wear & tear syndromes of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and discs.
KEY Concepts in DNS
Development Kinesiology (DK)
DK explains the development of motor functions of a baby after she/he is born. It sees the outcome of motor patterns (movement) from a baby not as a result from the process of learning but from the very fact that the Central Nervous System (neurophysiological aspect) is maturing. With this concept, it is able to identify specific motor patterns (movement) characteristic towards a certain developmental age of the baby/child. This allows the opportunity to use this guideline as a reference for clinical assessment.
Functional Joint Centration (FJC)
FJC is the joint position that allows the most equally distributed load contact on the joints along a kinetic ‘muscular chain’ of a movement / stabilization. This will create an ideal situation which allows the body to generate maximal muscle work while having a protective effect of the surrounding passive structures (eg. ligament, bone). In short, the GOAL of DNS strategies is to achieve FJC throughout the dynamic movements at any posture.
Integrated Spinal Stabilizing System (ISSS)
In general, the major muscles in this system are:
In most situations, activation of these muscles during movement is automatic (subconscious) and not fully under our voluntary control. The interplay of all these major muscles references around the goal of creating a stable posture at its very core. Further to that, DNS advocates that respiration and stability are ALWAYS co-

Where is DNS from?
DNS was developed by Professor Pavel Kolar, PaedDr. He is the Director of the Rehabilitation Clinic, 2nd Medical Faculty of Charles University situated in Prague, Czech Republic. DNS is now taught throughout different parts of the world by their highly experienced Certified DNS Instructors Team.
