Course Description

Course Synopsis

  •  Improve understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology with an emphasis on development during the first year of life
  • Identify and describe key milestones in human development
  • Introduce the three level of sensorimotor control in functional assessment and treatment
  • Demonstrate the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood
  • Introduce new terminology pertinent to rehabilitation such as functional joint centration, punctum fixum, punctum mobile and the integrated stabilizing system of the spine
  • Define ideal postural stabilization from a developmental perspective: intra-abdominal pressure regulation, dual role of the diaphragm in stabilization and respiration, stabilization via co-contraction
  • Identify common stereotypes of faulty postural stabilization (“open scissors syndrome”, forward drown posture, backward drown posture, “hour glass syndrome”)
  • Explain and demonstrate biomechanics of undifferentiated, ipsilateral and contralateral postural-locomotion patterns; closed and opened kinematic chains, stepping forward and supporting function
  • Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns
  • Demonstrate the correlation between poor respiration patterns and functional pathology of the locomotor system
  • Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests
  • Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions: exercise in undifferentiated static positions; position transfer during locomotor function; exercise progression using unstable surfaces; increased difficulty of the exercises utilizing resistance, dual tasking and other challenges
  • Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies
  • Cover the basics of application of DNS concept in sport training
  • Provide basic clinical management explanation for clinicians to better integrate the DNS approach in their regular practice, including patient education
