Certification in DNS Exercise Course
To ensure adequate practice with clients, this practical test can only be taken one year after completion of the first DNS course (either DNS Exercise I or DNS A).
You may still choose to takeDNS Exercise III prior to that 1-year span. However, if you wish to take the trainer certification practical test, you will have to retake Level III again and sit for the test.
You will also need to complete an online test after taking the DNS exercise II course. It is a prerequisite for taking the practical test at the DNS Exercise III course.
When you earn your certification, you can choose to have your name listed on the Prague School Rehabilitation website for a one-time fee of 20 Euros. You are required to take at least 1 DNS course every 3 years to retain your certification status.
Educate attendees on the powerful influence neurology has on manual therapy and vice versa.
Cover the roll manual therapy plays in both DNS assessment and treatment.
Expose attendees to a variety of manual therapy techniques used by competent DNS practitioners such as trigger point work, joint mobilization/manipulation and active exercises performed in developmental positions.
Manual techniques are an often overlooked and yet integral component of DNS treatment. The purpose of this course is to expose attendees to the different manual techniques used by proficient DNS practitioners in hopes of improving attendees’ ability to assess and treat their patients.
*Space will be limited in order to provide an ideal ratio between instructor and students.
