Erin McGuire, PT, OCS

Erin McGuire PT, OCS has been a physical therapist for 22 years.  Owner of Back in Balance Physical Therapy, in Los Angeles, CA, Erin is a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist and a Prague School of Rehabilitation DNS instructor/practitioner.

 

It was during her first couple years of practice, while focusing her continuing education on manual therapy, that she was introduced to the movement system approach; including the philosophies of professors Vladimir Janda  and Shirley Sahrmann.  In 2005, these movement system principles led her to Prague, Czech Republic, where she began her studies of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) with Professor Pavel Kolar PT, Paed Dr, Ph D.  After four years of studying and practicing DNS, Erin became one of the first internationally certified DNS practioners in 2009.

 

Having competed at the NCAA level of softball in college, as well as having a lifetime interest in sports, focusing her practice on treating the orthopedic and sport rehabilitation population was a natural fit. While she utilizes an eclectic approach in her practice, it is largely influenced by the DNS philosophy and the concepts of the Prague School of Manual Medicine.  Her passion for movement and practice of DNS has increased her interest and focus on the diaphragm and it’s functions, relating to both respiration and intra-abdominal pressure, and the key role they play in creating optimal stabilization and movement.  In 2014, she created the core360 belt, a tool to facilitate proper utilization of the diaphragm and to increase awareness of how important the diaphragm muscle is in movement and overall well-being.  Through teaching and the core360 belt, she hopes to assist other practitioners in understanding the principles of DNS and how to better utilize the approach.
