EQ1110: Equine Myofascial Release Techniques Level II
Please note: If you are taking the course for personalize interest, you can sign up for the tuition fee without the externship. We cannot add it in later.
Author and instructor Ruth Mitchell-Golladay, PT leads this three-day course. All of us in the industry recognize Ruth as the “queen” of MFR! She has been featured many times in print, she is invited by physical therapy groups as well as veterinary groups to present workshops and she has been an invited guest on several talk shows.
This course is designed for those individuals who have participated in the EQ1100 Equine Myofascial release course. Ruth will expand on the MFR techniques and will present exercises to address the body’s dysfunction enabling better recovery. There will be loads of problem-solving with various labs and lots of discussions. Each participant is asked to share one case study using Equine Myofascial Release Techniques (this is not required if you are doing the two MFR classes back to back). Documentation including initial exam, sessions completed and the outcome will be needed. Any visuals are welcome; please check with the office at least 3 weeks in advance if you require equipment which we may have on hand for your presentation. Ruth will direct the class discussion over each case study.
For this course your instructor Ruth Mitchell Golladay states that the course is very different from the Equine MFR I course. In the MFR I course where the emphasis is placed on the use of the right brain for listening to the body and using intuition, in the MFR II course students will be using the left brain to investigate the possible causes of certain restrictions. Additionally, the course will cover specific rehabilitation situations.
In an effort to enhance the seminar students are requested to bring the following to class (again not required if you are doing the 2 MFR classes back to back):
- A list of common or consistent problems/restrictions you have encountered while performing MFR in the pelvis/hind end
- A list of common or consistent problems/restrictions you have encountered while performing MFR in the neck/shoulder/front end
- A list of rehabilitation challenges you have faced
- Myofascial/Osseous and related structures review
- The body’s response and adaptation to injury and dysfunction
- Presentation and discussion of existing case studies
- Myofascial Release Techniques
- Advanced MFR techniques
- Advanced Myofascial Stretching
- Additional Therapeutic Exercise Targeted for Specific Injury
- Exercise for Strength Training
Course Duration: Students attend class daily for three days from 8am to 5pm.
