The central component of thought in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is that healthy movement patterns are programmed into babies and remain ingrained in the central nervous system into adulthood. However, various aspects of living and lifestyles may cause the blueprint for ideal movement to become fragmented or imperfect. The brain simply forgets these subconscious motions and loses the ability to coordinate muscle movement as optimally as once before. DNS acts as a restoration tool to reconnect the brain to the movement blueprint we drew from during early childhood. While DNS is used primarily for adults, it is used to treat several pediatric conditions in children. It has even been used to benefit learning and behavioral patterns in children.
A baby does not have to be told how to sit upright, breathe properly, take a step, squat down, or crawl. A baby does these actions and does them perfectly. This is the “blueprint” that DNS draws upon. If an adult can mirror fundamental movements of babies, that original connection can be restored.
