Assessing Movement and Posture

CPD Course for Equine Therapists

Assessing MovementMovementWednesday 6th September 2017

Broomfield Hall, Morley, Derbyshire DE7 6DN

This course, suitable for qualified therapists from all disciplines wishing to hone their assessment skills, revise techniques or explore new ones to add to their toolbox, is a mix of theory, observation, practical demonstrations and small group sessions. It also provides the opportunity to network, share information and discuss interesting or challenging cases with other practitioners in a relaxed and supportive environment.

  • Conformation and posture
  • Muscle development
  • Muscular strengths and weaknesses
  • Stability versus flexibility
  • Movement and compensation patterns
  • Balance, strength and stability
  • Asymmetry
  • Gait irregularities
  • Subtle lameness
