The course is designed for participants to expand on their previous techniques and include techniques and approaches which require a higher skill set level. Topics covered are 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, 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 (a)symmetry, clinical reasoning based on findings from static and dynamic evaluations, muscular facilitation techniques/methods for proprioceptive activation and core strength activation/facilitation techniques. The class will utilize the 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. Please Note: This course is open to licensed professionals (vets, vet tech, chiropractors and advanced EEBWs.) Please call the office to discuss eligibility.

Clinical Reasoning for Licensed Pros

  • Aug 11 - Apr 14
  • Location: Petaluma, CA, USA

Petaluma, CA. Dr. Kerry Ridgway, DVM presents this unique clinic which has been developed specifically for the advanced equine health care provider. This four day course focuses on the musculoskeletal system; a system often overlooked in the well being of the horse. Dr. Ridgway has had repeatable successful results using acupoints and advanced soft tissue mobilization techniques to investigate musculoskeletal issues on horses especially the performance horse. In this 4 day course, a portion of the course will focus on equine laterality, from the perspective of the treating veterinary clinician; the focus will be on the manifestations and pathology that the syndrome creates. Gait aberrations, muscle and myofascial patterns, tendonitis, desmitis, foot balance, saddle fit, degenerative joint disease, including facet joint pathology are all critical aspects of the "non-straightened" horse. The lectures will discuss therapies that best address the root causes of this condition. As always, Dr. Ridgway and his wife, Christine share insights and latest soft tissue techniques with the participants.
