The nervous system establishes programs that control human locomotion, which is comprised of posture and movement. This ‘motor control’ is largely established during the first critical years of life. Therefore, the “Prague School” emphasises neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order to assess and restore dysfunction of the locomotor system and associated syndromes.

The “Prague School” of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine was established by key neurologists/physiatrists, all of whom were giants in the 20th Century rehabilitation movement: Professors’ Vaclav Vojta, Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda, and Frantisek Vele.

Based upon the groundbreaking neurodevelopmental and rehabilitation principles described by these mentors,

Pavel Kolar has organized the next generation of clinical protocols that are designed to restore and stabilize locomotor function. This new rehabilitation approach is called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).

DNS like  any good corrective exercise approach supports rather than replaces athletic development. It is an amazing movement prep. Like Gary Gray’s work DNS helps get people off the table, off the floor & finally upright. Not, just uniplaner, but tri-planer. The goal of DNS is to improve the functioning of the core “cylinder” – pelvic floor, diaphragm, abdominal obliques, & deep spinal intrinsics & thus facilitate a more efficient program for upright posture.

 Dr Lewit said it best “don’t try to teach perfect movement patterns, correct the key fault that is causing the trouble.” In other words using FMS language don’t sweat 2′s by trying to turn them into 3′s. Our goal is mark 0′s & possibly refer & certainly leave them alone. Then, hunt for 1′s to use as goals. Still realizing “the methods should serve the goals” as Dr Lewit said. So, “don’t train the damn test”. Find what you think is causing the 1 & train or facilitate that. Assess-Correct – Reassess. Audit as I & Gray Cook both say & you can convert 1′s into 2′s.
