How DNS Helps Improve Baseball Performance: By Dr. Len Mayer

I’ve been using Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) as a core foundation of my practice for 14 years. While DNS may not be a household name, it is a practice that is in regular use by some of the most elite athletes in the world.

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a method of rehabilitating the way humans move, either to improve athletic performance or to help rehabilitate people bodies after an injury.

The brainchild of professor Dr. Pavel Kolar, Czech rehabilitation expert and team physician for the Czech national hockey, soccer and tennis (Davis Cup) teams, DNS is breaking new ground in physicians offices and rehabilitation clinics; as well as with athletes in virtually every sport, all over the world.

DNS is not a technique. It is a system, an approach, to therapy and training that uses normal baby development as the “functional norm”, as described by world-renowned pediatric neurologist, Vaclav Vojta, M.D., and used in the treatment (Vojta’s Method) of babies with neurological disorders such as cerebral palsy (see: Reflex Locomotion).
