The key to our success is our expertise and understanding of the underlying causes of neuromuscular and skeletal conditions. This allows us to correctly diagnose problems and select a procedure most suitable for each patient. The cornerstone of our practice is Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Method, a European technique that restores the structural and postural alignment of the body. It is a 21-century system of physiotherapy that has helped many people with back pain and other neuromuscular problems, including elite professional athletes, such as Jaromir Jagr, Roger Federer and Jan Zelezny. We also utilize physical therapy, chiropractic methods, and other cutting edge rehabilitation techniques, such as Brugger Therapy, Kinesio Taping, sensory-motor stimulation, and Vojta therapy. Additionally, we use rehabilitative equipment such as Spinal Decompression therapy, Radial Shock Wave Therapy (EPAT), ATM, Balance Master, Skiers Edge, Spine force and Laser therapy.
In most of the physiotherapy and chiropractic schools of rehabilitation, as well as in personal training, muscles are trained in isolation. Strengthening weakened muscles in isolation from the unified locomotor system however does not guarantee that established power will automatically transform into adequate performance. Moreover, trained movements that are not integrated into a global motor pattern cannot become involuntary and therefore would be of little help to the patient. For example, we usually do not consciously manage how we walk, stand or seat. These and other habitual movements are controlled by the independent movement patterns “programs” embedded in the Central Nervous System.
The DNS developmental kinesiology approach by Kolar, treats locomotor dysfunction by integrating the corrected movement into the frame of these programs. This way the movement becomes automatic and patient is able to use it without thinking. Most of the DNS exercises are conducted in the classic creeping, crawling or rolling positions. They are applicable for patients with variety of acute and chronic conditions as well as for athletes who are trying to improve their performance and also prevent or rehabilitate injuries. These exercises could include the use of gymnic balls, therabends and other related equipment.
The exercises are not only used to improve the stability of the spine, muscle coordination, balance and strength. They are also designed to increase the body awareness. Linking motor learning with global reflex motor pattern and the interactions of sensory input leads to the most effective intervention in spinal care.
Concussion and Injury in Athletics There is no question that participation in any type of physical activity comes with inherent risk of injury. When it comes to competitive sports, particularly contact sports, the risk increases exponentially. In recent years, there has been much discussion about the risks of concussion in elite athletes, particularly in sports […]Read More (0)
Hamstring strains are among the most common athletic injuries, particularly in sports like football, soccer, and other sports that involve high speed running and kicking. Dancers are also highly prone to hamstring strains, with 34 percent reporting at least one incident of acute hamstring strain.3 Once an athlete has suffered a hamstring strain, the risk […]Read More (0)
