DNS vs. Physical Therapy
When comparing with conventional physical therapies the advantages of the DNS become apparent. DNS uses neuro-plasticity of the Central Nervous System producing rapid and long lasting improvements in pain relief and the function. Conventional physical therapy methods, on the other hand, take a long time to produce any effect and those tend to wear off soon after the therapy stops.
DNS method is the only therapy that focuses on improving spinal stability and motor control acting directly on the Central Nervous System. The training is conducted in the most natural (ideal) body positions. These are the positions that infants assume when straggling against the gravity to stand up and walk. When trained in this way, the pathologically disrupted neural pathways of the central movement control are re-established and stabilizing mechanisms become automatic providing basis for healthy and efficient movement.
In contrast, conventional Physical therapy works by strengthening weakened muscles in isolation from the rest of the locomotor system. The effect of such therapy is strictly localized and does not guarantee that established muscle power will automatically transform into adequate overall performance. Moreover, trained movements are not integrated into the global locomotor patterns and cannot become involuntary and therefore would be of little help to the patient.
Unlike the conventional physiotherapy, DNS does not rely on the passive care. Instead DNS teaches patients self correction and prevention techniques and exercises that do not require clinicianâ€™s assistance and can be performed in the privacy of the patientâ€™s home. This proactive approach ensures patientâ€™s dynamic involvement in the healing process and minimizes doctor-patient dependency.
The advantages of DNS over the conventional physical therapies show that patients with neuro-muscular disorders have a superior alternative to the commercially established methods of treatment.
