Dr. Nicole Rombach, MEEBW, MSc., PhD presents this 2-day course for licensed equine health care professionals

Theory:

  • Biomechanics: evidence-based concepts of mechanoreception, nociception and joint mobilization/range of motion (ROM) in function/dysfunction of the equine spinal column
  • Neuromotor control: evidence-based concepts of motor control in dynamic functional stability
  • Evidence-based concepts of muscle activation and proprioceptive facilitation: rehabilitation versus conditioning/training

 

 

Practical:

Joint mobilization and ROM techniques for the spinal column (cervical and cervicothoracic region, thoracic and thoracolumbar region, lumbopelvic region, sacral/coccygeal region)

  • Static/dynamic motion assessment with an emphasis on evaluation of muscular (a)symmetry
  • Clinical reasoning based on findings from static and dynamic evaluations
  • Muscular facilitation techniques/methods for proprioceptive activation
  • Core strength activation/facilitation techniques

REQUIRED READING

Review of musculoskeletal anatomy

Review of anatomy and physiology of the nervous system
