Description

Dr. Nicole Rombach MEEBW, MSc., PhD presents this 3-daycourse for licensed equine health care professionals. Please see prerequisites. This is the Advanced Equine Body Work Level II course.
An in-depth look at the spinal column in regards to biomechanics, function and dysfunction as well as joint mobilization is presented in hands on practicals and backed with evidence-base concepts.Muscular facilitation techniques, core strength exercises and static/dynamic motion assessment are covered in addition to hands-on practicals and classroom theory. Participants will also have the opportunity to utilize the Equicore Concepts EQUBAND™ system as well as other devices to improve strength,condition and proprioception. Advanced equine bodywork techniques are presented throughout the course so participants can utilize these in their current practices.
The course emphasizes proper protocol for utilizing the techniques presented in the course. All concepts are anatomically and biomechanically referenced. The course will also include assessment of the entire horse including both static and dynamic evaluation in regards to the muscular symmetry and neurological guidelines. The class is presented with loads of hands-on, specimens,illustrations and horses of varying body types and conditions.

COURSE CONTENT

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
Practicals:
• 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 development of muscular symmetry and/or asymmetry.
• Clinical reasoning based on findings from static and dynamic evaluations
• Muscular facilitation techniques/methods for proprioceptive activation
• Core strength activation/facilitation techniques
