Webinar Series – Rehabilitation for Equine Back & Sacroiliac Conditions (Recorded June 2020)


WEBINAR SERIES CONTENT

Back and sacroiliac problems are amongst the most debilitating conditions affecting equine athletes.  Local injections of medications do not usually resolve the problems long-term unless combined with a comprehensive rehabilitation program and the introduction of management changes.  

This webinar series was developed for equine practitioners with a good working knowledge of back and sacroiliac conditions and covers how to use therapeutic modalities effectively in combination with comprehensive exercise protocols aimed at strengthening the back/gluteal musculature.  The world-renowned specialists will be discussing the following topics interactively with the attendees:

  • The physical therapist’s Approach to Back & Sacroiliac Conditions
  • Physical therapist’s Evaluation of the Equine Back & Pelvis
  • Therapeutic Modalities for Back & SI Conditions – Therapeutic Laser, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, Electrical Stimulation, Rapid Release Technology & Radiofrequency Therapy
  • Therapeutic Exercise for Back & Sacroiliac Problems
  • The Importance of Saddle Fit
  • Development of Treatment Plans for Back & SI Conditions
  • Underwater Treadmill    
  • Therapeutic Monitoring of Back & SI Conditions
  • Return to Sport – The Progression incl. Management Changes
  • Home Exercise Programs for your Clients
  • Injury Prevention & Maintenance
  • Conditioning & Performance Enhancement
  • Horse, Saddle & Rider Interactions
