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 2-day practical course 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 Physiotherapist’s Approach to Back & Sacroiliac Conditions
  • Physiotherapist’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                           

In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical small-groups sessions on live horses will allow attendees to become familiar with various therapeutic modalities and physical therapy exercises that can be shared with horse owners by rotating through the following stations:

  • Physiotherapist’s Evaluation of Back & Sacroiliac Problems
  • Therapeutic Exercises for Back & SI Problems – Improving Proprioception & Core Stability
  • Physiotherapy – Manual Treatment Techniques
