Holistic equine care and rehabilitation

ABC of the Horse Biomechanics offers an alternative to traditional medical views on rehabilitation, based on a holistic approach to the horse.

The book contains detailed instructions, based on years of practical experience, on how to prevent injuries and how to treat them with physio­therapeutic techniques, and on rehabilitation, particularly my means of manipulation.

ABC of the Horse Biomechanics also contains a section on clinical examination, which will help those involved in equine rehabilitation in defining their treatment goals and making appropriate treatment decisions.

In addition to seeking to restore overall balance to the horse’s movements, manipulation and physical rehabilitation aim at prevention of injuries and restoration of lost muscle strength.
