What is Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization?
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.
Dr. Craig Morris has studied at the Prague School for almost 25 years and is one of three original DNS international instructors since 2008. At the turn of the century, he would travel to Prague to study independently study with the Professors’ (the late) Karel Lewit, (The late) Vladimir Janda and Pavel Kolar. 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”. He has utilized the brilliant work of Kolar on a daily basis for more than a decade, both in his clinic, in his DNS courses, and on professional athletes around the world.
