Kiara Physiotherapy provides a combination of manual form of therapy supported by the movement
aspects and corrective exercises based on Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization approach (DNS). It
is a manual and rehabilitative approach to optimize the movement system based upon the scientific
principles of developmental kinesiology (DK). The developer of DNS is Professor Pavel Kolar, PT,
PhD, a Czech physician who has been influenced by the “greats” of Prague School of Manual
Medicine. DNS is rapidly gaining attention and acceptance in the sports rehabilitation and
performance arena for both the recovery from musculoskeletal overuse injuries and in injury
The purpose of the technique is to promote proper activation and coordination of the neuromuscular
system. This approach compares the stabilization pattern used by a patient with the stabilization
developmental pattern that develops naturally as a result of the typical developmental sequence in a
healthy baby.

Many patients with low back pain do not use their diaphragm and deep stabilizing system properly.
DNS treatments routinely begin with proper training of the diaphragm by normalizing breathing
patterns and restoring the stabilizing function of the diaphragm. Restoring proper function to the
deep stabilizers (core) is important not only for those with chronic lower back or neck related
problems but also is essential to provide a stable base for treatment of peripheral joint issues such as
hip, knee, shoulder, ankle, and foot problems.
In addition to core stabilization, DNS focus on joint centration. Joint centration is established when
the joint surfaces are positioned in a way that provides the greatest joint congruency and the best
mechanical advantage for the muscles that support that joint throughout its entire range of motion.
Restoring proper joint centration allows for optimal use of the muscles to support the joint with
minimal stress to the ligaments, cartilage, and joint surfaces. DNS treatment helps to normalize
joint and muscle function, improve stability, reduce pain, and improve your quality of life.
