Intervertebral Disk Degeneration & Cervical Rehabilitation Approaches

In horses with axial skeleton pain and dysfunction, the focus has often been on the vertebrae themselves, as that is what one can observe on radiographs. However, maybe even more important are the soft tissues that hold and support the vertebrae from C2 to the sacrum. In this webinar, Dr. Haussler will review the anatomy and biomechanics of the intervertebral disk in horses and the related neck pain, stiffness, ataxia, and poor performance. Cervical rehabilitation approaches will be discussed with an important overview of surgical stabilization procedures as they relate to manual therapy and the conservative management of affected horses.

Understanding Compensation Patterns in Horses

Practitioners often talk about compensations and compensation patterns. However, they often offer very different definitions or explanations based on their individual perspectives and modes of assessment. In this blog, we will attempt to clarify, and will delve into the different ways the body reacts to injury or disease, whether those responses are good or bad, and what we can do to help manage them.
