Lecture: DNS: Addressing Symmetry and Asymmetry


  1. The effect of CNS maturation into adulthood is accompanied by ongoing changes in physiology anatomy and behavior

  2. Clinically, one of the most important aspects for treating the adolescent and adult is the left- right differentiation not only of our CNS and bodies (as a result of our natural predilection)- but also of our habitual stereotypical movement interaction with the environment.

  3. Habitual movement choices lead to physical adaptation and appear to stem from both the asymmetric nature of our bodies but also brain function of the 2 hemispheres

  4. Dominance of the hand, eye, leg, in resting and active postures, differentiation in respiratory diaphragm strength and shape, asymmetric organ distribution etc, all lead to the development of physiologic adaptations and habits which are necessary for efficiency and energy conservation. However should the predilection for stereotypical movements and postures become too extreme we run the risk of becoming self-limiting in our function and lose the flexibility of choice. This can lead to dysfunction, pain and impairment and finally injury

  5. We often observe these asymmetries in our clinical analyses but are challenged in trying to address them in a comprehensive fashion

  6. DNS can play an important role in the analysis and restoration of equilibrium while maintaining our need to be asymmetric in our functional interactions throughout our ADLs

Dvoudenní kurz:

Improving Results in Clinical Application and Integration


  1. 1.This course is designed to compliment the assessment and evaluation of existing DNS tests and therefore is an important aspect of data collection intervention and the audit process

  2. 2.Prof. Kolár often states he trains joint position, which means that in order to change the stereotype of movement, the ability to reeducate and retrain movement quality becomes dependent on attaining good centration and alignment of initial joint position. In adults the DNS positions can be challenging and improving strategies through manual therapy and activation can assist the therapist in achieving these goals

  3. 3.Improving the afferent quality is of vital importance as the encased brain must have sufficient information to respond with ideal strategies or be persuaded to change and reformat inadequate strategies stimulus manipulation

  4. 4.Therefore the aesthetic quality (perception quality) is the gateway to change and manual therapy can be a powerful adjunct, rapidly influencing the quality of exercise components such as centration, muscle balance, ROM, activation or relaxation, force distribution, coordination, etc., and then affect skill acquisition and performance too

  5. 5.Inventive use of the DNS positions and active therapy can assist the therapist in being more efficient and effective

  6. 6.We also obtain immediate feedback from the impact of our intervention keeping in mind that pain abolition is only one aspect of a rehabilitation audit
