Understanding the fascia system and its function in relation to locomotion and posture is essential in advancing our understanding. The fascia system integrates the body in a three dimensional network, which extends from the skin and deep into the body, and exists as well at the cellular level into into individual cells and even the cell nucleus. The fascia represents the fundamental skeleton of all structures in the body. The functions of the fascia are numerous and span from pure mechanical to many interconnected functions as well as communications with the central nervous system.
In this course kinetic myofascial lines in the horse and dog will be presented and explained in theory and in practice. Inspired by Dr. Tom Myers (Myofascial Trains), eleven equine and canine myofascial kinetic lines have been dissected and isolated. The lines interact in a full-body network, spanning from head to toe, inside to outside, and they balance each other in every direction – in both, standing and motion. Detailed knowledge of the lines is a valuable tool to evaluate and understand the body balance, functionality and compensatory mechanisms in horses and dogs under normal and pathological conditions.
