Speaight E., Routledge N., Charlton S., Cunliffe C. (2016)

A preliminary study on the effects of head and neck position during feeding on the alignment of the cervical vertebrae in horses

Poster presentation at International Society for Equitation Science conference, Saumur, France, June 2016

Published in Journal of veterinary Behaviour:  Clinical Applications and Research Sept/Oct 2016

  Abstract  Poster 

Highlights

  • The method of feeding hay to horses (floor, haynet, Haybar) affects the head and neck position on a daily basis.
  • Study suggests an effect on the musculoskeletal system, with notable differences in areas of muscle tension.
  • May imply a link between how horses are fed and their musculoskeletal health

A preliminary study to investigate the prevalence and progression of pelvic axial rotations among neonate foals.

Poster presentation at International Society for Equitation Science conference, Saumur, France, June 2016

Oral presentation at 3rd International Veterinary Congress, London, August 2016

Published in Journal of veterinary Behaviour:  Clinical Applications and Research Sept/Oct 2016; Journal of Veterinary Science & Technology. 7 (5) Proceedings of the 3rd International Veterinary Congress OMICS International.

  Abstract  Poster 

Highlights

  • The importance of symmetry and musculoskeletal well-being in the ridden horse is widely acknowledged
  • Pelvic asymmetries may be present in new born foals, or certainly develop very early in life.
  • Positive evidence of pelvic axial asymmetry from birth to 8-9 weeks of age in foals.

The effect of manual chiropractic treatment on pressure measurements beneath the saddle

Poster+oral presentation at Saddle Research Trust conference, Cambridge, November 2014.

Oral presentation at BSAS conference, Chester, April 2015

Published in Advances in Animal Biosciences Vol 6 (2) April 2015

Abstract         

Poster

Highlights                      

  • Back problems in horses are recognised as an important factor in performance impairment.
  • Saddle fit is considered a factor in the pathogenesis of back problems.
  • Positive evidence that chiropractic treatment affects the horse’s back and reduces mean pressure beneath the saddle.          

 

Langstone J., Ellis J., Cunliffe C. (2015)

A preliminary study of the effect of manual chiropractic treatment on the splenius muscle
in horses when measured by surface electromyography 

Poster presentation at ISAMP conference, Warwick, November 2014.

Oral presentation at BSAS conference, Chester, April 2015

Oral presentation at BEVA congress 2015

Published in Advances in Animal Biosciences Vol 6 (2) April 2015

Published in Equine Veterinary Journal, Vol 47, S48, Sept 2015

Abstract         

Poster

Highlights

  • Evidence of a statistically significant reduction in splenius muscle activity following chiropractic treatment (McTimoney approach).
  • Measuring muscle activity in a stabilising muscle of the spine may be a useful method of determining the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment in horses

 

Rossa N., Charlton S., Cunliffe C.(2015)

The effects of manual chiropractic and instrument assisted chiropractic on spinal mechanical nociceptive thresholds (MNTs) in flat racehorses without clinical signs

Poster presentation at ISAMP conference, Warwick, November 2014.

Oral presentation at BSAS conference, Chester, April 2015

Published in Advances in Animal Biosciences Vol 6 (2) April 2015

Abstract         

Poster

Highlights

  • Positive evidence that  chiropractic (McTimoney approach) and instrument assisted chiropractic using an Integrator treatments on horses reduces sensitivity to pain (increased MNT’s) compared to no treatment.
  • Chiropractic (McTimoney approach) appears to have a longer lasting effect (day 10) on increasing MNTs compared to treatment with the Integrator.

An investigation into relationships of horse and rider pelvic asymmetry

Oral presentations at BSAS conference, Nottingham,  April 2014; International Conference on Equine Exercise Physiology, Chester, June 2014.

Published in Advances in Animal Biosciences Vol 5 (1) March 2014; EVJ supplement , June 2014  http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/evj.2014.46.issue-s46/issuetoc

Abstract         

Poster           

Highlights

  • Assessment of single horse and rider partnerships for misalignments  and asymmetry of neck, spine, pelvis
  • Positive evidence of a relationship between the direction of the pelvic rotation of the horse and rider pelvic tilt.
  • Positive basis for further research into causal effect relationships of horse and rider asymmetries.

The effects of chiropractic treatment on the range of motion of the carpus and tarsus of horses

Oral presentation at BSAS conference, Nottingham, April 2014; Poster +oral at International Conference on Equine Exercise Physiology, Chester, June 2014.

Published in Advances in Animal Biosciences Vol 5 (1) March 2014; EVJ supplement , June 2014  http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/evj.2014.46.issue-s46/issueto

Abstract 

Poster                  

Highlights

  • Clinical signs of back pain and spinal dysfunction can include asymmetric or restricted joint motion.
  • Positive support evidence that chiropractic treatment of horses may increase joint ROM of the carpus and tarsus and improve joint ROM asymmetry.

An investigation into the relationship of pelvic misalignment on forelimb hoof size

Oral presentation at BSAS conference, Nottingham, April 2014; Poster +oral at International Conference on Equine Exercise Physiology, Chester, June 2014

Published in Advances in Animal Biosciences Vol 5 (1) March 2014; EVJ supplement , June 2014  http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/evj.2014.46.issue-s46/issuetoc

Abstract         

Poster

Highlights

  • Pelvic rotation misalignment can be associated with reduced performance and lameness
  • Redistribution of locomotor forces to other limbs to off-load a limb is a compensatory mechanism
  • Evidence of a statistically significant relationship between the alignment of the pelvis and growth (length and width) of horse’s fore-hooves
