Chiropractic Rehabilitation Exercises in Kansas City
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)
F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic uses a combination of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and functional movements as part of their rehabilitative exercise protocol. Our rehabilitation exercises in Kansas City focus on proper movement patterns allows patients to return to full function more efficiently and effectively.
DNS starts at the highest levels of our body’s functioning, the brain, to explain and correct proper movement quality. After studying how we develop as children, DNS has shown we are able to utilize normal developmental positions to retrain ideal movement in patients. By emphasizing quality over quantity in the office our patients are able to improve body awareness while decreasing pain and muscular compensations.

How Rehab Exercises Work
Rehab exercises, such as DNS, enable our doctors to use a detailed assessment to determine the primary area of dysfunction. This allows us to address any compensatory patterns that may be directly or indirectly causing the patient’s primary complaint of pain.
Stabilization precedes movement and whenever the body feels unstable, the body restricts that mobility. Many people will just stretch or foam roll when they feel tightness, when often it is the body crying out for more stability, and less stretching. Knowing when to use soft tissue techniques, and when to use rehab exercises is F.I.T.’s speciality.
Rehab Exercises at F.I.T.
F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic uses some form of rehab exercise in each treatment session. The muscles and systems most in need of retraining are best determined through assessment and rehabilitative exercises such as DNS.
At F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic we are trying to change the function of how your body is utilizing certain muscles by incorporating more neurology (brain power) in these complex, yet somewhat simple, exercises. This is what allows our patients to move better and be stronger than before they found F.I.T.
