Eliška Urbářová, MPT
Eliška Urbářová completed her Physiotherapy Master’s degree at the Faculty of Physical Culture, Palacky University, Olomouc in 2011. She also studied physiotherapy in Finland at the Lahti University of Applied Science for five months. Since 2011, Eliska has been working as a physiotherapist within the outpatient and inpatient departments at the Rehabilitation Clinic, University Hospital Motol in Prague. She also became an instructor in rehabilitation, teaching physiotherapy to medical students at the 2nd Faculty of Medicine at Charles University.
Eliška specializes in the functional assessment and treatment of older children, adults and sports patients; she has completed numerous professional courses including the: Aerobics diploma; Children Aerobics; Stretch and Overball diploma; Chi-toning and Bosu courses; Medical Taping Concept; Form, function and facilitation by Karel Lewit; Global reciprocation inhibitor by Petr Bitnar and Reflex locomotion according to prof. Vojta. Since 2012 she is a certified instructor for “Kolar´s Approach to Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization: A Developmental Kinesiology Model”.
In her rehabilitation practice, Eliška particularly focuses on the treatment of older children and adult patients with neurologic and functional impairments. 2011-2013 she worked with the U19men Floorball National team as a physiotherapist, 2014-2016 with FBC Kladno 1st Floorball League team as a physiotherapist and fitness coach.
Dr. Morris D. Gasparin, DC
Dr. Morris Gasparin graduated in 1994 from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. Previous to this, he majored in mathematics in his undergraduate studies at the University of British Columbia.
Dr. Gasparin was a lead international instructor with the Motion Palpation Institute (MPI) from 1997-2000. He is a fully certified level 1 and 2 practitioner in Active Release Techniques (ART) as well as Nerve Entrapment and Biomechanics. He is also level 1 and 2 certified in Stecco Facial Manipulation© (FM). Additionally, he has completed courses in Neurodynamics according to Shacklock, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and Level 1 Medical Provider for the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). Dr. Gasparin has written several articles about Neuromuscular Stabilization, and his YouTube channel has worldwide subscribers.
For four successive years, he worked as a primary care provider for Ironman at the Kona, Hawaii World Championships. Dr. Gasparin is certified in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization by the Prague School of Rehabilitation as an Exercise Trainer, Clinical Practitioner and Paediatric Specialist.
Dr. Gasparin has been in private practice since 1995, utilizing an eclectic approach toward patient evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation. The cornerstone of his practice is based on the philosophies and principles taught by DNS according to Kolar and the Prague School of Rehabilitation.
DNS Course B Objectives
- Demonstrate an understanding of developmental kinesiology and its relationship with the pathology of the locomotor system: a review of theory covered in the A course and introduce a more advanced approach, namely the verticalization process.
- Describe the basis for primitive reflexes and postural reactions and their roles in developmental kinesiology.
- Introduce basic information about reflex locomotion according to Vojta.
- Demonstrate the assessment of babies: attendees will be able to recognize ideal and disturbed locomotor patterns and determine the developmental age of the babies.
- Demonstrate and teach proper handling of infants.
- Demonstrate application of the DNS assessment and treatment in adult patients with pain and dysfunction within the locomotor system – stabilization assessment and treatment strategy.
- Postural analysis & testing of integrated spinal stabilization system – a review of the
- Course A tests and an introduction to additional more advanced tests.
- Integration of corrective exercises based on newly taught DNS functional tests.
- Exercise in differentiated ipsilateral and contralateral static positions, position transfer during locomotor function, exercise progression using unstable surface, resistance against “planned movement,” dual tasking and other challenges in ipsi and contralateral patterns, the transition between ipsilateral and contralateral patterns, and training of isolated segmental movement.
- Introduction to cortical functioning – body scheme, quality of relaxation, isolated
- segmental movements.
- Provide more complex clinical management reasoning for clinicians better to integrate more advanced DNS protocols into clinical practice.
- Optimally prepare students for the next level of training (Course C)
