DNA – Module Two


After we have established a well-functioning breathing apparatus, the next progression is to complete the Dynamic Platform.  DNA™ Module 2 focuses on the Deep Longitudinal and Lateral Kinetic Chains that complete The Dynamic Platform.

In Module Two you will take the template learned Module One and apply that to shock absorption, ground force reaction, and axial stability.

Mod Two will expand your application of The 5 Essential Skills so that you can continue to safely challenge the nervous system of your clients in incremental and beneficial way.

Specifically, we will explore how foot, knee, and hip arthokinamatics integrates with the sacral iliac joint and leg drive. Next we evaluate the axial skeleton. We are looking at the capacity for kinetic energy translate up through leg drive into the axis of the spine.

A supportive Dynamic Platform will provide the necessary integration so that we can begin to explore the subject of Module Three, storing and releasing elastic energy.

In each module of Dynamic Neuromuscular Assessment ™️ ~ we take the template of The 5 Essential Skills and apply them in an incremental progression from static to dynamic ~ all the while maintaining the first consideration of the nervous system, learned in Mod One ~ which is limbic safety.

DNA™ Module 2 Synopsis

The Dynamic Platform provides the musculoskeletal system with the stability it needs to act with and respond to a changing environment. Without this Dynamic Platform, the appendicular skeleton would be impaired to appropriately respond to movement. In other words, without the Dynamic Platform, work production, and the storing and releasing elastic energy, would not have optimal capacity.

There are several concepts that are woven into the evaluation of the Dynamic Platform. When you complete the Module Two seminar, you will have a greater understanding of integrating the following skills and neurological principles.

How to:

  • Apply The 5 Essential Skills with greater refinement
  • Expand the Mapping process of the Symptom Causation Relationship
  • Progressively challenging the ability of the nervous system to respond to movement with the Global / Local / Global model of assessment
  • Apply The Functional Compass™ to a joint capsule. Restoring the capacity of the joint to respond to movement, restores the neuromuscular sequencing of the musculature that acts on the joint
  • Utilize global assessment strategies that become the homework strategies to reinforce sequential integration
  • Refine the process of proofing the movement equation before implementing corrective strategies
