Title: ‘Use of Chiropractic in Veterinary Industry – What causes asymmetry of the pelvis?’

When:  Thursday 23 September 2021 @7.00 – 8.30pm

Where: Zoom

What: Does your horse move equally through both hips, creating even power from both hindlimbs?

How can you tell if your horse is asymmetrical in the hindquarters, and what effect does it have anyway?

Initial research findings suggest that pelvic asymmetry can present from birth, (Stroud et al, 2016) and that correction of asymmetry produces improvements in stride length and speed in horses (Trott et al, 2012).

This webinar looks at the various causes of pelvic asymmetry and how these affect movement throughout the skeletal frame using latest data collection measures.

Learn more about how McTimoney treatment focuses on achieving symmetry and thereby improving equine athletic performance.

Presented by McTimoney Animal Association members and research staff from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic:  Dr Emma Punt and Nikki Routledge.

Speaker biographies: Nikki Routledge MSc MMAA, is a qualified McTimoney Animal Practitioner who has been treating competitive and pet horses and dogs in South West England for over 18 years. Nikki also enjoys teaching students at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic, being able to pass on the knowledge and skills which have given her such a varied and interesting career working with so many animals and their owners, to a new generation of animal chiropractic practitioners.
