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.
