Research in Animal Chiropractic

On this page we have offered some research linked to veterinary chiropractic, manual therapies, myofascial techniques, osteopathy and physiotherapy. If you know of a study that is directly related to veterinary chiropractic that is not listed here, please let us know by email at  contact@ivca.de

Aktueller Projektstand

Die equine Halswirbelsäule: Untersuchung der dreidimensionalen Bewegung der Halswirbelgelenke des Pferdes in Abhängigkeit verschiedenen Kopf-Hals-Haltungen mit Hilfe von Hochfrequenz-Fluoreszenz-Kinematographie

Nach erfolgreicher Durchführung der Invivo-Versuche, konnten die biplanaren Röntgenvideos der oberen Halswirbelsäule bearbeitet und erste dreidimensionale Animationen erstellt werden. Anhand von lokalen Koordinatensystemen wurden die Winkeländerungen des Atlantookizpital- und Atlantoaxialgelenkes im Stand, Schritt und Trab ausgewertet. Im beiliegenden Video ist eine Animation der oberen Halswirbelsäule im Stand zu sehen- von der forcierten Bewegung der Kopf-Hals-Region über die Röntgenaufnahmen bis zur fertigen dreidimensionalen Animation

Project report

Examination of the three-dimensional range of motion of the intervertebral articulations of the equine cervical spine with regard to different head-neck positions by using biplane high-speed fluoroscopic kinematography

After successful performance of the in vivo examinations, the biplanar X-ray videos of the upper cervical spine could be processed and first three-dimensional animations were created. Using local coordinate systems, the angular changes of the atlantooccipital and atlantoaxial joints in stance, walk and trot were evaluated. The attached video shows an animation of the upper cervical spine in stance – from the forced movement of the head and neck region via the X-ray images to the three-dimensional animation.

Seeking research project for funding!

Animal chiropractic needs more research to reach out to more groups. It has always been an objective for IVCA to support research. Included in the IVCA membership fee there is a 10 Euro fee earmarked for research. IVCA have a research committee that evaluate research projects for funding, and IVCA has develop criteria for seeking funding to research project. See here for the criteria and application form.

If you are planning on doing research related to animal chiropractic, please do not hesitate sending in an application for research funding. Please send in the application, with all the required information to the IVCA office at contact@ivca.de. 

We hope you all will help us inform of this possibility to seek funding for animal chiropractic research to whom it may concern.
