DNS Skills Course on Scoliosis and asymmetry


Course objectives:

DNS functional tests to assess individuals with scoliosis and body asymmetry

Hands-on workshop to refine manual skills when working with  patients with asymmetry

Review of saggital stabilisation, kids/adults optimal posture, sports performance

Disturbance of saggital stabilisation in child hood, adult hood & in athletes

Corrective exercise for individuals with scoliosis based on DNS and reflex locomotion

Clapp crawling –advanced variations

Asymmetry in adulthood, athletes – hands-on workshop – active exercises in advanced RL positions (modifications of RTII, III, hanging position)

Review of corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and  developmental positions (modifications of exercises in higher developmental positions – tripod, bear, squat, half kneeling, step up )

Training of body awareness. 

Clarification of how DNS  corrective exercises can be  integrated into other exercise  strategies.

Video and patient demonstrations.
