Hear Dr. Liebenson talk about Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a manual rehabilitative approach based on developmental movement principles. It is designed to activate the body's stabilizing system by stimulating movement control centers in the brain. It stabilizes the body by teaching the body to mimick and internalize the precise postures a child takes when it learns to crawl and upright itself. The method helps to restore the structural and postural alignment of the body's neuromuscular skeletal system by invoking a full body "global" motor patterns.

Dr. Liebenson is the Director of L.A. Sports & Spine a pain management, rehabilitation & performance enhancement center providing one on one musculoskeletal care. He began studying with both Dr. Karel Lewit and Pr Vladimir Janda beginning in 1987 and has been regularly hosting Pavel Kolar’s programs for more than a decade.
