The IAVC is pleased to present again a two-module course in functional movement analyses and mobilization. In two modules, this very practice-orientated course explores the “functional motion circuits” of the horse: Head-neck, neck-chest-forelimb and sacroiliac-hind limb.  It comprises three building blocks: biomechanics, manual analysis and treatment techniques as well as a Medical Training Therapy Program to improve the general athleticism of the horse and the planning of rehabilitation. The course offers you a deep view into the concept and the ability to use it in your daily work as an important tool to understand and to improve the functional connection between movement, structural overload and performance of the horse. This functional therapy concept can be combined perfectly with chiropractic.

The Functional Movement Analyses and Dynamic Myofascial Mobilization

The course content includes the development of kinetic energy through myofascial catapult systems as well as the role of the muscles as voltage and direction generators of kinetic energy. In the coordinated interaction of the two systems, a catapult mechanism is created, which is significantly responsible for the development of the athleticism of the horse and at the same time relieves the tendon and joint systems by active shock absorption. The role of functional movement chains is discussed in this context and related to chronic overload reactions of the horse. The basic techniques of manual therapy analysis and therapy of functional movement chains are presented and practically carried out.  They serve the prophylaxis as well as the planning and implementation of training therapy measures within the various rehabilitation phases. Orthopedic-oriented veterinary doctors who want to deal with the basics of medical training therapy as well as manual-therapeutically oriented veterinarians are addressed, who want to expand their work with a movement- and function-oriented concept. 

Modul I

Biomechanical concept:

Functional movement chains: cranial and caudal motion circuit, the interaction of both and the influence of the classic dressage schooling system into it

Working mode of the catapult system inside the horse

Influence of the concept into athleticism, prevention and rehabilitation

 Dynamic Myofascial Mobilization:

Basic techniques to analyze and to improve the functional movement chains
