DNS A course



Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology with an emphasis on development during the first year of life.

  • Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood.
  •  Demonstrate understanding of new terminology such as functional joint centration, punctum fixum, punctum mobile and the integrated stabilizing system of the spine.
  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of the principles of reflex locomotion:  locomotor patterns - stepping and support function and stimulation zones.
  • Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.
  • Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests.
  • Perform the basic techniques for reflex locomotion, i.e. reflex turning 1 & 2, and reflex creeping:  initial positioning and anticipated movements, key zones and their vectors.
  • Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions used in reflex locomotion.  Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies.
  • Provide basic clinical management explanation for clinicians to better integrate the DNS approach in their regular practice, including patient education.
  • To optimally prepare students for the next level of training (Course “B”).
