  • The basic principles of developmental kinesiology
  • Development during the first year of life:
  • Stabilization of the spine in the sagittal plane, development of the phasic movements coupled with trunk rotation
  • Spontaneous motor patterns during first year of life
  • The relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood
  • Posture from a developmental point of view
  • Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns
  • New terminology such as functional joint centration and decentration, stabilization, punctum fixum, punctum mobile
  • The integrated stabilizing system of the spine
  • The most important principles of reflex locomotion: locomotion patterns – stepping and support function and stimulation zones
  • The basic techniques for reflex locomotion, i.e. reflex turning and reflex creeping
  • Assessment of the deep spinal stabilizing system
  • Techniques used in the treatment of the deep stabilizing system of the spine based on the principles of reflex locomotion
  • Integration of corrective exercises based upon the DNS functional tests taught and initial RL positions
  • How DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies
  • Clinical management: how to integrate DNS protocols into regular practice, including patient education
  • Establish individual goals (DNS understanding and skills) for participants to be optimally prepared for the next level of training
  • (Course “B”)


“I thought this course was comprehensive with respect to early development and the potential impact to pain & dysfunction later on in life. I even recommended it to several Pediatricians I know. The skills and knowledge learned from Pavel Kolar can apply to physical therapists in all aspects of care from pediatrics to orthopedics to neurologically compromised individiuals. Definitely a great course.”

Melissa Kolski, P.T., Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

“Pavel Kolar’s evaluation and treatment techniques will not only change the way you practice but will change the way you think. Pavel’s courses are invaluable in practice and they will help take your clinical expertise to a whole new level. At the Chicago ’06 course Pavel, Alena Kobesova, MD, and his 2 P.T.s providing an unparalleled supervision making for a “hands-on” experience that was critical in helping you integrate Pavel’s concepts immediately Monday morning.”

Corey Campbell, DC, DACRB, Nebraska Spine Center, LLP

“The last program done in Chicago with Kolar was the best yet. The organization, notes, and topics were exactly what I needed to be able to apply this material in practice. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is treating the musculoskeletal system.”

Brett Winchester, DC DACRB, Troy , MO

“Reflex locomotion stimulation and the theory behind gives you an understanding of how problems arise and at the same time a tool for correction.”

Teddy Fohlmann, Chiropractor and member of multidisciplinary “back team” in Esbjerg,Denmark

“You get a good model of explanation for the function of the locomotor system, and tools for examination and treatment of the chronic and hypermobile patient. These are the patients lacking central stability, that has tried rehab unsuccessfully in the past”

Mogens Frost, GP and member of multidisciplinary “back team” in Grindsted, Denmark

” Through very specific positions and stimulation points the patient learn to activate the deep stabilising muscles, enabeling voluntary control to develop before more advanced training is started. When this basic step is lacking failure of rehabilitation is seen. Simply an ingenious technique.”

Grethe Jensen, Physiotherapist and member of multidisciplinary “back team” in Grindsted. Denmark

“I have always sought results, and you certainly get them using this technique”

Ida Nørgaard, Chiropractor & MSc., London
