Attention! This is a discounted pre-course in collaboration with the 19th Annual ACA Rehab Council Educational Symposium.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a leading rehabilitation approach that has evolved from the world famous Prague School of Rehabilitation at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.
DNS has taken the rehab world by storm over the past decade!! DNS clinicians in all aspects of clinical and sports rehabilitation have taken courses all over the world and are applying DNS principles in every imaginable venue.

His 2004 Los Angeles area course introducing leading rehab clinicians to Professor Pavel Kolar provided a key boost for what would later be called “The DNS Movement”.
