Focus: The cervico-thoracic (C-T) junction of the horse
The junction between the cervical and the thoracic spine is a very important area in the quadruped’s spine. Biomechanical disorders in this region can cause many problems especially in collection and engagement.
Dr. Steve Engle will demonstrate his techniques to address this region. Steve has integrated many different techniques, like SOT and manual mobilization techniques, to his classic chiropractic treatment. By using his whole body he creates extra velocity for adjustments in this area.
This seminar is composed of two parts.
Dr. Elbrønd graduated in Animal Chiropractic at the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic (IAVC) in 2009 and is also a certified member of the IVCA.
Dr Steven D. Engle, DVM (US, Florida)
For the past 15 years Dr Engle has continued to treat some of the top US and International show jumping and dressage athletes. He is largely acknowledged as both an innovator and expert in the field of sport horse chiropractic.
During the second part of the seminar you will see a treatment demonstration by Dr. Engle. Accordingly you will have the opportunity to discuss the different techniques all together with Dr. Engle and Dr. Elbrønd.
The seminar is open for Veterinarians (DVM) and Human Chiropractors (DC) only and is limited to 30 participants.

Introduction to Postural RehabilitationInstructors: Karen Gellman DVM, PhD, Judith M. Shoemaker DVM, Elizabeth Reese CTAT
Postural Rehabilitation is an integrative, science-based approach to alleviating chronic performance problems and preventing musculoskeletal injury. It provides a global perspective on how manual therapies alter the complex systems that control the neuro-musculoskeletal apparatus in animals.
The training program includes in depth study of the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology concerned with initiating and maintaining normal standing posture and locomotion, analysis of distal mechanoreceptor systems that contribute to postural control (upper cervical, stomatognathic, distal extremity), and diagnostic and treatment methods using applied clinical neurology and advanced neurologic reprogramming techniques.
Through lectures, demonstrations, hands-on labs and individually tailored tutorials, participants will learn how to diagnose and treat postural abnormalities. Correct posture promotes normal function of the neuro-musculoskeletal system while at rest, allowing healing to take place. Correct posture integrates the movements of locomotion, improving performance and decreasing the risk of injury. Postural Rehabilitation training also emphasizes correct postural usage for the practitioner, both to facilitate effective kinesthetic communication with animals and to prevent work related injuries. The program utilizes unique team teaching approach, with integrated contributions from our clinical, scientific and kinesthetic experts throughout.

Simply Small Animals: The Geriatric PatientAfter the success of the initial "Simply Small Animal" day in 2012, we are pleased to offer another informative and clinically oriented seminar, this time focusing on the geriatric patient. The topics and format of the seminar will once again encourage the exchange of practical knowledge and case management skills regarding our older patients.
A Complete Review of TechniquesIn response to many requests over the years, the IAVC has created a two day seminar to specifically provide animal chiropractors with a thorough and complete overview of veterinary adjusting techniques. We are pleased to be offering this new course format in 2013, which corresponds to our ten year anniversary of teaching veterinary chiropractic in Europe! We think this seminar fits VERY WELL with our Integrated II Advanced Module, as we continue to attempt to bring you more choices in learning veterinary chiropractic skills. Look at the schedule, and come and be part of it all!
Advanced Integrated IIThis final module in the advanced course cycle will include such diverse topics as gaited horse biomechanics, bovine motion palpation and adjusting and Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy applied to the chiropractic patient. The chiropractic integrative approach to visceral/organ problems will also be discussed.
