Dr. Wenberg & DNS
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization
Dr. Wenberg was first exposed to the work of the Prague School in the 1980s, when Czech neurologists lectured at her college. She continued her focus on the Prague School, first studying in Prague in 1994, and with Pavel Kolar, PT, PhD starting in 1997.
Dr. Wenberg’s studies led to certification as a Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) Practitioner in 2009.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a natural development of the principles of the Prague School. DNS is a manual rehabilitative approach based on developmental movement principles. DNS is designed to activate the body's inherent stabilizing system, and train the brain to maintain stable control of movement and posture.
DNS includes “hands on treatment” by a clinician plus specific functional exercises - both designed to improve physical stability and coordination by facilitating the body’s inherent stabilizing system.
All humans were born with the human genetic code that programs maturation and development, including the ability to walk, crawl, turn over, reach, and run. Pediatricians assess these actions to determine if small children are developing ideally. Clinicians assess these actions to determine if adults are functioning ideally.
The power and beauty of DNS lies in the fact that practitioner analyzes the quality of movement and posture with an appreciation of the genetic developmental code that all humans share.
DNS treatment employs brain plasticity and the genetic developmental pattern to foster healthy and efficient movement and posture.
Dr. Wenberg, and her DNS colleagues, combine traditional orthopedic and functional neuromuscular medicine with DNS-based assessments. Dr. Wenberg treats patients using DNS in concert with osseous and soft tissue manipulation, physiotherapy approaches, and developmentally based exercises.
DNS therapy is applicable to a broad range of musculoskeletal and neurological disorders.
