It's pretty amazing, if you've ever stopped to think about it, that a human baby can go from lying helplessly when born to crawling, standing and walking within the span of about 15 months without ever being taught.

Imagine what that rapid progression would mean to an adult! The medical/rehabilitation profession studying the development of human movement has identified milestones in the baby's first year that represent ideal posture and stabilization. More importantly, we can use these milestone positions to not only rehab movement dysfunction, but enhance performance!

At the core of these findings is the Integrated Spinal Stabilization System or ISSS which is made up of the diaphragm, pelvic floor, abdominal muscles and short stabilizers of the spine. They work together to increase pressure in the abdomen which creates better congruency at joint surfaces and balances the back extensors for an elongated and upright posture. Using the ISSS while practicing milestone movements from a baby's development integrate the entire movement system and will trigger familiar pathways in your brain that helped you learn how to walk when you were a baby.

Check out this progression called the Czech Get Up. It's a variation of the Turkish Get Up using the principles of developmental kinesiology and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).
