Back problems are rarely isolated, focal problems
Current spinal research and recent advances in diagnostic and advanced imaging techniques have created awareness of the prevalence and clinical significance of formerly underappreciated or undiagnosed spinal and sacroiliac disorders in horses. Detailed spinal-pelvic examination, manual therapy with a focus on chiropractic techniques and specific rehabilitation programs provide an increased opportunity for effective management of neck, back and sacroiliac problems in horses.
Focus on the Equine Spine was established with the ambition to offer equine veterinarians and physiotherapists a high-quality, clinically-oriented, evidence-based post-graduate education in all aspects of the diagnosis and management of neuromusculoskeletal issues in the equine spine and pelvis.
The organization offers a Base and an Advanced Course, both consisting of three 3-day modules, 5 extra-modular practical trainings, a theory and a practical exam.
Next event is the start of a new Base Course in September 2023, registration is open; last week to register, we have some places left!
The first Base Course module is scheduled on September 20-22 2023, with a second 3-day module in December and a third in April 2024.
Please check Agenda for an overview of the Base Course agenda 2023-2024.
