Doris Timmann and Jennifer Henrikson
The IVCA conference 2023 is over and we hope everyone has returned home safely. It was a great weekend with 3 fantastic speakers. Our special thanks to all participants!
20 June was the deadline for the hotel’s price guarantee, after which higher prices may apply to the hotel.
Registration for the conference is of course still possible. There will probably be 13 CE hours for the conference, but that still depends a bit on the practical part that will be offered on Saturday.
Please remember that this trip to the IVCA Conference is a business trip and therefore tax deductible as a business expense.
Fascia in animal chiropractic: What can we learn fom each other?
Werner Klingler studied human medicine at the University of Ulm and at the Guy’s and St. Thomas Medical School in London. He completed his training in Applied Physiology at the University of Ulm under the supervision of Dr. med. Frank Lehmann-Horn, a pioneer in muscle research and one of the world’s leading experts in myofascial diseases. There he also completed his specialisation as a clinical anaesthetist with training in complex pain medicine. Klingler is an active clinician, heads the neurophysiological muscle laboratory and is co-founder of the Fascia Research Group in Ulm. He was a founding member of the first Fascia Research Conference at Harvard University in 2007, chairman of the Fascia Research Conference in Berlin 2018, Scientific Committee Member 2022 in Montreal and host of an ongoing series of fascia summer schools and connective tissue conferences. Klingler has received several awards, including the Young Investigator Award of the Federation of European Physiological Societies, the World Congress on Low Back Pain Award and the Vladimir Janda Award for Musculoskeletal Medicine.

Cattle – the forgotten patient: Benefits and limits of manual therapy for this not so exotic patient
DVM, CVA (cretified veterinary acupuncturist), CVBMA (certified veterinary balance method acupuncturist) und certified veterinary chiropractor:
Imke Tratsis studied veterinary medicine at the University of Leipzig (Germany) and the vetsuisse University of Bern (Switzerland).
She graduated in 2009 and then worked in large animal and mixed practices. In 2013 she earned her degree in veterinary chiropractic and to make her work in this field more effective she started learning TCVM at the Chi Institute of Europe in 2015. She achieved her CVA in 2017 and her CVBMA in 2022.
Since 2015 she has been working in her own practice with the main emphasis in TCVM and chiropractic in the south of Germany. Here she treats mainly horses, dogs and some cattle.
Since 2021 she is the director of the Chi Campus Germany and teaches TCVM to other vets.
She is married, has two children and lives in the South of Germany.
Topic: “Cattle- the forgotten patient (benefits and limits of manual therapy for this not so exotic patient)
Advance chiropractic: Theory and hands on lessons
Tools for setting the right priorities for the individual patient including an algorhythm for diagnosing primary subclinical lameness issues vs primary internal problems. Treatment options including myofascial release, osteopathic diaphragm techniques and trigger points.

Introducing cutting-edge Incrediwear technology, a revolutionary innovation that is a game changer in Equine industry. Incrediwear Equine’s mission is to transform the world of recovery, performance, and injury prevention by providing revolutionary products for horses that improve their well-being.
This technology harnesses the remarkable power of negative ions, setting us apart from all others in the field. Woven into the fabric of Incrediwear are Germanium and Carbon, both semiconductors with the extraordinary ability to activate upon contact with body heat. This activation unleashes a cascade of negative ions, which, once inside the body, react within the blood vessels and the interstitial spaces—the delicate realms between blood vessels, tissues, and muscles.
These vibrations are the catalysts that stimulate blood flow through the vessels, accelerating circulation. Yet, what truly sets Incrediwear apart is its ability to enhance lymphatic flow as well. While conventional technologies displace excess fluids temporarily, our technology actively flushes them into the lymphatic system, ensuring a complete and lasting resolution.
Now, let us delve into the icing feature—a capability made possible by the unique attributes of Carbon and Germanium. When water interacts with these semiconductors, negative ions surge to life, rapidly ushering excess heat out of the body, and providing Intense cooling effect.
This “Icing with no ice”: method is nothing like traditional ice treatments:
Therefore, when using Incrediwear, no dramatic temperature shifts are noticeable compared to typical ice-based solutions. We provide cooling by the power of negative ions not ice.
Incrediwear Equine: Elevating Equine Wellness
Incrediwear Equine products offer a multitude of benefits for horses:
When the horse wears Incrediwear Equine products, the activated semiconductor elements in the fabric emit negative ions upon contact with body heat. These negative ions stimulate molecular vibrations in the horse’s tissues, which increase blood vessel diameter (vasodilation), enhancing blood circulation to muscles and tissues.
The improved blood circulation from Incrediwear Equine products also supports lymphatic drainage. This helps clear excess fluids and waste products from tissues, reducing the risk of swelling and inflammation.
The combination of increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage promotes the removal of excess fluids and inflammatory by-products. This reduction in swelling and inflammation can help alleviate discomfort and support the horse’s overall well-being.
The fabric’s moisture-wicking properties allow it to retain water, turning the product into a cooling mechanism when wet. When applied wet, it functions similarly to an ice pack, providing soothing relief to the horse’s muscles and joints, without all the bad side effects ice has.
By increasing circulation and oxygen delivery to muscles, Incrediwear Equine products contribute to enhanced muscle function. This optimization of muscle performance can lead to improved endurance and overall equine performance.
The improved circulation and muscle support offered by Incrediwear Equine products reduce muscle fatigue during exercise. This reduced fatigue lowers the risk of strains and injuries, ensuring the horse can perform at its best while staying injury-free.
accelerated recovery process. Injured tissues heal faster, and the horse can return to normal activity levels sooner than without the use of Incrediwear Equine products.
Injury: By promoting increased blood circulation to injured or affected areas, these products deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, accelerating tissue repair. Additionally, the improved circulation helps maintain an optimal healing environment by removing waste products and inflammation.
The result is a shortened recovery time, allowing horses to return to their normal activity levels sooner. This not only benefits their performance but also enhances their overall comfort and quality of life during the healing process.
Exercise: After demanding training sessions, these products promote faster recovery by improving blood circulation, which aids in removing metabolic waste products and reducing muscle soreness. They also minimize inflammation and swelling, enhancing the horse’s overall comfort.
This accelerated recovery ensures that horses are in prime condition for their next training session, allowing for consistent training schedules without extended downtime due to post-exercise discomfort.
The increased blood flow facilitated by Incrediwear Equine products plays a crucial role in thermoregulation. This enhanced blood flow assists in regulating the horse’s body temperature by efficiently transporting excess heat from internal organs to the skin, where it can dissipate into the environment.
Incrediwear Equine is a game-changer in equine care, providing a safe, effective, and innovative approach to enhancing horse wellness, performance, and recovery.
