DNS-A er hugsað sem undirbúnings námskeið fyrir fyrirhugað barnanámskeið í December 2022/ pediatrics.



The nervous system establishes programs that control human posture, movement and gait. This ‘motor control' is largely established during the first critical years of life. Therefore, the “Prague School” emphasizes neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order to assess and restore dysfunction of the locomotor system and associated syndromes.

In addition, they are involved in various research projects studying the clinical effect of DNS, becoming experts in DNS application in specific topics such as DNS assessment and treatment of neurological, orthopedic or pediatric clients; DNS application in sport, fitness and exercise; DNS to improve female's health; application of DNS principles in mobilization and relaxation techniques; combining DNS concepts with Yoga principles; and DNS treatment for clients with viscero-somatic symptoms etc.

Course objectives

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 16 •Provide basic clinical management explanation for clinicians to better integrate the DNS approach in their regular practice, including patient education

Um leiðbeinandann 

Ruud Alsemgeest born in The Netherlands, Ruud Alsemgeest graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, in Bournemouth, United Kingdom in 2002. The next ten years he worked as chiropractor and clinic director of one of the largest private chiropractic clinics in The Netherlands. Here, he was fortunate to be able to become experienced with a large variety of patients, from babies to elderly, from weekend-warriors to international elite athletes.


Ruud was introduced to the work of Professors Karel Lewit and not the least Pavel Kolar in 2009. Ever since then, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization has greatly influenced Ruud's scope of practice.

After his move to Stockholm, Sweden, in 2012 he has been working at his private chiropractic and rehabilitation clinic Funktions Fabriken. Here, he combines an array of manual therapy and soft tissue techniques with DNS developmental exercises and evaluation. His biggest interests are movement analysis and performance optimization for athletes.
