DNS Plank

To add more challenge to the plank exercise a version called the long lever plank has been introduced. Moving the elbows above in front of the head and thereby spreading the support points further from each other will definitively increase the demand and if performed correctly is a much better option to the traditional version.
The DNS program introduces a planking position which not only is more challenging but also is very functional.

The “Short-hand”

The “short-foot” concept was introduced into rehabilitation and training by Professor Janda many years ago. The short foot can simply be described as a slight contraction of the intrinsic muscles of the foot thereby making the foot stronger and providing a better support. For the very same reasons it is important to provide a strong supporting hand in all exercises using the hand as support. Faulty loading of the hand will not only result in excessive loading of the wrist but will also severely affect the stabilization of the scapula.

All joints have a position of ideal alignment for each movement. Developmental Kinesiology and Reflex Locomotion have given us a blue-print of these ideal positions. Joint centration is the position of greatest inter-osseous contact between the bones to allow for optimal load transfer and maximum muscle pull. In other words, joint centration is the ability to hold a joint in its ideal position, thereby allowing maximum loading with minimum strain. ...read the full post

Stabilizing Function

One of the most commonly made mistakes in rehabilitation programs is that muscles which are not performing their stabilizing function properly get classified as weak and a strengthening program is designed to bring the muscle up to required strength – unfortunately however, most of the strengthening exercises are performed in a phasic function. ...read the full post

I recently received a website inquiry for more information on “Postural Tai-Chi” which I mentioned in one of my DNS blogs. I doubt there is much material available, so I thought it was a concept worthwhile expanding upon.

GORD Treatment without drugs

The cause of GORD (or acid reflux) is primarily a mechanical imbalance, not a chemical one. The symptoms are not from excess of stomach acid but from the fact that acid is able to pass back up through the lower Oesophageal sphincter - which is controlled by the diaphragm. A properly functioning diaphragm keeps the acid in the stomach.
