Canine Kinesio Taping

Right after the olympic games in London everybody knows them: the colorful elastic strips that the athletes wear with pride - no tattoo, no makeup, no war paint, sticking to

shoulders, elbows and knees or calfs - do they have any reason to wear them?

Right now we can buy the strips in supermarkets and have them precut, on rolls, in animal print - they found their way in our therapist life and in our veterinary clinic.

In humans there are a lot of studies that show how the tapes can be used as a therapeutic tool, a preventative tool and as and aid for better proprioception and motor control veterinary medicine is slowly following.

In my daily canine physio and rehab work I find the tapes super useful - let me show you why and how it is done.


Slow Motion Gait Assessment and Muscle Function

Join CIECBW with Dr. Sabine Mai, taking an indepth look at gait and muscle function.  What muscles are working when the dog is moving? Lets break it down and see! We will take slow motion videos, of the dogs at all gaits as well as the dogs at work in different diciplines.  What are we asking the body to do? What does it effect? How best can we prepare the dogs for the work? What type of exercises would be most beneficial?

All of these questions and more will be answered in this amazing 2 day class.  The Slow motion gait assessment and muscle function is designed to dive right into the therapeutic exercise class to be held on July 16, 2020.


Therapeutic Exercises

If we look at our dogs - we see organisms that have evolved to trot effortlessly for long, long distances. Breed selection does have a lot of different effects on the movement patterns of our dogs.

Hyper accented gaits, brachyocephalia and chondrodystrophia will stress myofascial tissue in very different ways. The therapists have to know exactly which tissues are under myofascial stress and will cause lameness and pain in the long run.

Our dogs work more than ever: Monday, Tuesday its agility, Wednesday and Friday Obedience and the weekends are for competition. Thursday is free? No, this is the herding day…..Other dogs do not have any exercise at all - squishy, spongy myofascial tissue and bored to death - once again we need very educated therapists to build an exercise program, that will help THIS dog to relax and stretch overworked tissue, balance asymmetries, build muscle mass and improve motor control.

In our 2 day program we will work on evaluation, training principles and exercise.

We will get to know diff erent training devices and pads and balls and donuts and and and…..

We will decide:

•  What does THIS dog need?

•  Which muscles have to be exercised?

•  What is the perfect training regime under supervision?

•  What is the perfect home work program?

•  And does our exercise REALLY work on the problem?

As usual we will work in detail in a very interactive way - always with a hand or two on the dogs.
