Myofascial Kinetic Lines in the Horse and Dog
A new and functional way to understand the locomotion system.
Thursday and Friday (9am – 6pm) February 21st and 22nd 2019 at the Heimathaus Sittensen, Am Heimathaus 4, 27419 Sittensen, Germany
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Vibeke S. Elbrønd, DVM, Ph.D., Cert. Vet. Kir., Cert. Vet. Aku. Func. Indir. Osteop.
In this course kinetic myofascial lines in the horse and dog will be presented and explained in theory and in practice. Inspired by Dr. Tom Myers (Myofascial Trains), eleven equine and canine myofascial kinetic lines have been dissected and isolated. The lines interact in a full-body network, spanning from head to toe, inside to outside, and they balance each other in every direction – in both, standing and motion. Detailed knowledge of the lines is a valuable tool to evaluate and understand the body balance, functionality and compensatory mechanisms in horses and dogs under normal and pathological conditions.
