Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

DNS Tennis 

Specific Sports Course

2 Day’s with 

Pavel Kolar, PhD., P.T.


Tennis Athlete

June 23-24, 2018


DNS Tennis

2 days

Course Objectives:

-Developmental kinesiology aspects for the ideal stereotype of the tennis athlete


-Basic core stabilization as a prerequisite for locomotion patterns

-The role of the diaphragm during aerobic/anaerobic exercise; dual postural-respiratory diaphragmatic function and how it applies to the movement quality and performance.  

-Biomechanics of the tennis athlete with regard to sequencing, timing, and interactions with the ground "Kinematic Sequence”

-The extremities functional differentiation for tennis strokes, stepping forward and supporting function for the interplay between the ipsilateral and contralateral pattern during this specific sport technique.

-DNS active exercise positions to train core stabilization as a prerequisite for the ideal stroke stereotype

-Biomechanics and developmental kinesiology principles applied to the tennis athletes.

-The most frequent types of musculoskeletal dysfunction resulting from non-optimal sport technique stereotypes and poor methodology of training.

-Manual treatment, mobility/strengthening, and coordination (active) exercises from the developmental perspective in order to prepare the athlete for play.

Pavel Kolar, Ph.D., P.T. Is the founder of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS). 

Professor Kolar is a physiotherapist by training who holds a doctorate in pediatrics. He is the Director of the Rehabilitation Department, University Hospital Motol, School of Medicine, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. 

Professor Kolar is renowned for his work in rehabilitation and the

application/utilization of DNS methods to high level athletes in the world of


He is the team clinician for the Czech Olympic teams, Soccer team, Men’s

Davis Cup and Women's Fed Cup tennis teams and the national ice hockey


The 2 day DNS Tennis course with Pavel Kolar, Ph.D., P.T. is designed to introduce the concepts and principles of DNS as they apply to the assessment, treatment, and training of the Tennis athlete. 

This course will be valuable for coaches, strength and conditioning specialist, personal trainers and clinical professionals working with the Tennis athlete. Attendees of this course should expect to have an understanding of DNS and its application to the tennis athlete.

"DNS is part of our daily regimen and has completely changed our mindset towards dealing with training and preparing to play. I have seen DNS do almost miraculous things to my team and own children. Giving my players and myself the ability to facilitate our deep stabilizing systems in order to move and perform more efficiently has been an amazing addition to our regimen"
-Peter Smith USC Mens Tennis Coach

What is Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization?

DNS encompasses principles of developmental kinesiology during the 1st year of life.

These principles define ideal posture, breathing stereotypes and functional joint

centration from a “neuro-developmental” paradigm.

DNS presents a critical set of functional tests to analyze the quality of functional stability

of the spinal and joint stabilizers, and to assist in finding the “key link” of dysfunction.

The stabilization training approach is based on ontogenetic global postural-locomotor

patterns. The primary goal is to optimize distribution of internal forces of the muscles

acting on each segment of the spine and/or any other joint.In the DNS training

concept, client education and participation are imperative to reinforce ideal

coordination among all stabilizing muscles to achieve the best sport performance.

DNS Sport Course attendees are advised on how to start training the ideal postural stabilization

function in the easiest and most primitive positions. They then learn how to

progress the exercises by using more challenging positions, applying resistance and/or

by adding limb movement to meet client’s specific requirements and sport goals.
