Sheila Schils Lecturer

How FES Can Be used to Treat Musculoskeletal and Neuromuscular Abnormalities in Horses - Selected Case Studies

with Sheila Schils: MS, PhD

When diagnosing neuromuscular injury and pain, the use of biomechanical evaluations to assess the mechanics of movement patterns has been useful in the human population. Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a technology that can create action potentials to produce musculoskeletal movement that is almost indistinguishable from the voluntary kinematics produced by the nervous system. This webinar will look at the use of FES and the treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular control abnormalities in horses through selected case studies.

BIRTHDAY BONUS WEBINAR

Stephanie Crawford

Graston Technique for The Equine Population

with Stephanie Crawford: DC, CAC

Graston is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) that has been widely utilized in human rehab for over 25 years and is now gaining popularity in equine therapy. This lecture will address the scientific basis and practical application of the Graston Technique for horses.

Lisa Davis

Managing The Rider and Bringing Elite Performance to Grassroots

with Lisa Davis: ACPAT Veterinary Physiotherapist

This lecture is designed to highlight the impact that the rider has on the horse and encourage horse riders to consider themselves as an athlete. It is intended to demystify elite performance by explaining the principles of sport-specific training.

Re-Thinking Functional Anatomy: What We Have Failed To Notice

with Elizabeth W. Uhl: DVM, Ph.D., DACVP, Veterinary Pathologist,
and Michelle Osborn: MS, PhD, Comparative Anatomist

The body has been thought of as being like a machine, but this model does not accurately reflect functional anatomy. Life is structured through tension (tensegrity), which has profound effects on our understanding of movement, in particular the role of fascia. It also means that movement must be understood in a whole-body context rather than then as the function of individual parts. We will discuss this exciting new paradigm and how it changes our understanding of athletic function in both humans and horses.

Functional Whole-Body Modelling of Horse and Rider

with Elizabeth W. Uhl: DVM, Ph.D., DACVP, Veterinary Pathologist,
and Michelle Osborn: MS, PhD, Comparative Anatomist

While whole-body analysis is commonly used to assess human athletic function and to prevent injury (pre-habilitation) this approach is rarely used to assess the athletic performances of horses. In this presentation, we will discuss the implications of the tensegrity paradigm and the development of whole-body functional models of horses and riders that can be used to better understand movement and the causes of poor performance and chronic athletic injuries.

Practical Applications: Navicular Syndrome

with Elizabeth W. Uhl: DVM, Ph.D., DACVP, Veterinary Pathologist,
and Michelle Osborn: MS, PhD, Comparative Anatomist

We consider the functional anatomy and pathology of the navicular apparatus and use our models to inform a functional, whole-body approach to better understand the pathogenesis of navicular syndrome.

Practical Applications: Cervical DJD and Other Case Studies

with Elizabeth W. Uhl: DVM, Ph.D., DACVP, Veterinary Pathologist,
and Michelle Osborn: MS, PhD, Comparative Anatomist

We will investigate cases of caudal cervical degenerative joint disease by documenting the vertebral lesions and modeling the postural mechanics associated with them. We will also discuss applications of a whole-body functional approach to other cases of chronic degenerative tissue injury and lameness.

Gillian Tabor

Post Colic Surgery Rehabilitation for The Equine Patient

with Gillian F Tabor: Reader in Veterinary Physiotherapy; ACPAT Chartered Physiotherapist

This webinar will discuss an overview of colic in horses and the common surgical procedures that Vetrehabbers should be aware of. We will discuss the role of rehabilitation following acute post-op care, as well as rehabilitation through the stages of healing with a return to full function and sport. The evidence basis, precautions and indications will be discussed.
