Through lecture and lab, Laurie leads participants through a detailed evaluation of the canine spine from a mechanical perspective. Focus is on manual therapy concepts and evidence-based rationale for treatment selection. An integrated model for dealing with spinal mechanics is covered including force closure, form closure, and motor control and timing for the neck, back, pelvis and ribs. Participants gain a greater depth of understanding of spinal mechanics, a better appreciation for the detection of spinal dysfunctions, and the ability to manually treat (via mobilization techniques) the spinal system. Instruction is given regarding testing of the musculoskeletal control of the spine. Prescription is given for therapeutic exercises targeted specifically at fine motor control and core stability, and additional concepts regarding pain control and resolution of maladaptive postures and behaviours.
