DNS Running

This course is designed for experienced DNS therapists who want to better integrate DNS principles into their practice. This is an advanced course. As such, basic DNS principles will be reviewed and built upon.  Petra Valouchova, Brett Winchester and Richard Ulm will all be teaching the course, so be ready to get a nice variety of application of DNS to assessment and treatment runners and running injuries. 
As with all DNS classes, this course will involve a combination of lecture and hands-on workshop. 
 
In this course the instructors will cover:
  • Biomechanics of the gait cycle
  • Functional assessment of the lower quarter according to DNS
  • Active exercises based in developmental kinesiology
  • Application of DNS to the running athlete
Course Objective:
  • Developmental kinesiology aspects for ideal stereotype of running and other sports performance.

  • Biomechanics of gait and the running cycle.

  • The role of the diaphragm during aerobic exercise; dual postural-respiratory diaphragmatic function.

  • The extremities functional differentiation for running - stepping forward and supporting function for the contralateral pattern of running.

  • DNS exercise positions to train core stabilization as a prerequisite of the ideal running stereotype.

  • Biomechanical and developmental kinesiology principles for foot centration & foot orthotics and selection of optimal shoes for different type of running.

  • The most frequent types of musculoskeletal dysfunction resulting from non optimal running stereotype and poor methodology of training: plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, knee pain, hip pain, low back pain.

  • Stretching and coordination exercises from the developmental perspective in order to get ready for running; educating the runner.
