The UT College of Veterinary Medicine will be holding the Science of Motion® Conference on Saturday, April 1, 2017, in Equine Performance & Rehabilitation Center Arena.
Science of Motion® is a new approach to therapy, which, instead of treating the pathological changes or damage, addresses the kinematics abnormalities causing the pathological changes. It would seem at first that the approach would be essentially preventive, but the successes of the therapeutic approach into fields where other therapies were ineffective underline the capacity of the horse's physique to heal efficiently or, as it is the case with kissing spine, to live with the problem, as long as the source of the abnormal stress has been corrected.
Every horse moves differently, and since none move perfectly, especially with a
rider on their back, even minor defects in gait can eventually result in lameness. As with human athletes, careful analysis of how a horse moves and the use of an individualized training program can both enhance performance and rehabilitate injuries, including those resulting in chronic lamenesses. Science of Motion® identifies and corrects the specific gait abnormalities inherent in each horse. This approach was developed by Jean Luc Cornille, Master from the Cadre Noir de Saumur in France, an international level Three-Day Event rider and trainer who has extensively studied equine movement. His skill, experience and research has allowed him to perfect methods that can be used to correct the imperfections of gait that inhibit a horse from reaching its full athletic potential and often lead to lameness. Science of Motion® has been successfully utilized to rehabilitate many different chronic disabilities including severe cases of navicular disease and kissing spine.
