Dr. Peter Attia is a medical doctor who focuses on longevity and natural health solutions. He has a great podcast and the podcast he released on March 8th is about Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization! This is the philosophy that I use in my practice everyday!!
It is great that Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, DNS for short, is starting to hit the mainstream. Dr. Peter Attia is a very well known medical doctor who has a great podcast and a subscription website that focuses on longevity and living healthy. I don’t agree with him on everything, but he is one of the best out there breaking away from the mainstream healthcare narrative which has lots of faults. He is a big proponent for DNS and has been promoting it from quite some time. I wish he would have done this podcast with Dr. Brett Winchester, who is my mentor because Dr. Winchester was one of the first to bring DNS over from the Czech Republic.
DNS was created by Dr. Pavel Kolar out of the Czech Republic. I have had the pleasure of training multiple times with Dr. Kolar on DNS. DNS is centered on the principle that when we are born our muscles and joints are immature, and in the first year of life we develop the shape and structure of our joints/posture, which culminates once we are upright and walking. When we are adults we can use the developmental positions which are used by the baby to activate the proper muscle coordination that we may have lost due to injuries, repetitive movements, or constant postures (like sitting). These are the exercises that I use for rehab purposes.
I have not had the chance to listen to the whole podcast just yet, but here is a link to the podcast page on Dr. Attia’s website. While you are there, look around and read some of the other posts about diet and health, they are really good!
Here is a link to the DNS website, there is a lot of great information there that I use all the time!
