Applied Kinesiology II, Sittensen, Germany, 30.10. – 01.11.2019

Applied Kinesiology: Clinical Applications expands on the concepts taught in Introduction to Applied Kinesiology by using muscle testing to diagnose muscle paresis or weakness. The diagnosis and treatment of cranial faults and their relationship to dural connected structures, particularly the pelvis is taught. TMJ anatomy and function are explained with methods for diagnosis and correction. Hand modes, as a means of differentially diagnosing differing structural, chemical, acupuncture and nutritional problems are taught as an important diagnostic approach. Hiatal hernia and ilio-caecal valve problems cause symptoms commonly misdiagnosed in clinical practice. A protocol for their detection and correction is included in the course.

New IAVC Course Series - Applied Biomechanics and Rehabilitation

The IAVC is very happy to announce a brand new course series starting later this year!

Responding to requests from many of you, and recognizing the tremendous potential to further expand our collective ability to help our patients, we have developed a series of five courses heavily focused on mastering an understanding of biomechanics and applying rehabilitation techniques.

The first module of the Applied Biomechanics and Rehabilitation course will take place on 22.-24. November 2019 and will be one of five exciting courses. The courses will address in depth equine and canine biomechanics and clinical rehabilitation techniques. Topics such as functional and objective lameness and gait analysis, electro- and physical therapy, functional training and the physiology involved as well as many other highly relevant topics for the progressive practitioner. Our experienced instructors and external experts will provide you with current theoretical knowledge of each topic plus lots of hands-on hours and practical application.

Courses can be booked individually, however, you can become an IAVC Certified Equine and Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner by attending the entire five-course series!

Please find the course outline below and save the date! We’re looking forward to seeing you in November!
