DSVK, Danish Veterinary Chiropractic Association, invites you to an interesting seminar in Postural Rehabilitation, which is a great and effective concept for treating canine and equine patients with postural challenges. There are more modules for both canine and equine patients, and the full packet of Canine Postural Rehabilitation seminars consists of three modules, and the full packet of Equine Postural Rehabilitation seminars, consists of four modules.

Course Overview:

Speakers: Dr. Judith Shoemaker, Dr. Karen Gellman and Elizabeth Reese.

Module “Introduction to Postural Rehabilitation” This 3 day introductory seminar is for both equine and small animal practitioners, and we will work with both dogs and horses. It has a high proportion of scientific content, to give a solid background in the biological basis of the clinical techniques. We will focus on the structure and function of the upper cervical region and the related biomechanics of locomotion. Individual and group instructions on correct practitioner body mechanics and function are an essential part of this module. There will be Alexander Technique workshops. To maximize practical and experiential programming on site, some of the conceptual programming is on a distance learning format, in June or July, where all participants will attend 1 day of webinar lectures. These lectures will be video-recorded, and can be showed any time until October 2019. Further information will be given after registration. Date: 5th August – 7th August 2019. 

Module “Canine Postural Rehabilitation” In this seminar small animal practitioners learn about the contributions of the stomatognathic system and distal extremities to posture. We will work with canine bite and skull malformations, and will explore the structure and function of the distal extremities. Focus will be on effective handling techniques and will provide significant improvement in clinical skills for diagnostics and treatment. Each participant has an individually tailored tutorial session to learn the basic postural reprogramming techniques. Positive coaching interaction and hands on practice provide opportunities for each participant to develop the skills taught, and integrate case management concepts. There will be Alexander Technique workshops. Practical sessions include both adult dogs and puppies. To maximize practical and experiential programming on site, some of the conceptual programming is on a distance learning format, in June or July, where all participants will attend 1 day of webinar lectures. These lectures will be video-recorded, and can be showed any time until October 2019. Further information will be given after registration. Date: 8th-9th August 2019.

Module “Equine Advanced Postural Rehabilitation Techniques”
In this 3 day seminar, each participant has an individually tailored tutorial session to refine their basic postural reprogramming techniques, and learn new ones for the hind end of the horse. Positive coaching interaction and hands on practice provide opportunities for each participant to develop the skills taught, and integrate case management concepts. Private Alexander Technique lessons will be given. To maximize practical and experiential programming on site, some of the conceptual programming is on a distance learning format, in June or July, where all participants will attend approximately ½ day of webinar lectures. These lectures will be video-recorded, and can be showed any time until October 2019. Further information will be given after registration.  Date: 10th August – 12th August 2019.
