What is NeuroMuscular Stabilization?
Neuromuscular Stabilization or Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), is like a rehabilitation program that is developed by the nervous system during the first critical years of life and is majorly responsible for controlling human gait, posture, and movement.
This technique was originally developed in Prague, and the intention was to treat neurologically ill or delayed children and the pain and dysfunction in adults which comes with age. This involves movements supporting the joints to become functionally more aligned and operate correctly.
Because when any of the muscles becomes dysfunctional, then the whole stabilizing system gets disturbed and the movement quality gets compromised which can potentially lead to severe injuries.
When we are young, our body works in proper perfect joint stabilization and synergy which helps in achieving a perfect movement. But, as we get older, various things come into the picture and hinder the synergy and don’t allow us to move with perfection.
More about Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS):-
The exercises in the DNS are derived from the movements of the young child like creeping, crawling, rolling, and comprise the utilization of various equipment like stretchable bands and fitness balls.
You can also say these exercises as Phase - 1 period.
The movements that a baby performs are the most efficient and correct because they are neurologically programmed in their nervous system.
