The Lower Leg Module is designed to educate all levels of equestrians and equine healthcare professionals. Each Equi-Taping module allows you to grow your knowledge in the areas you want to learn.
Equi-Tape has been working on creating both effective and groundbreaking applications designed to prevent injuries for working horses, reduce healing time for horses who are injured and help correct problems like contracted tendons. Built to be taken on their own, you can choose which level is right for you and your horse.
Level 1 - Athletic Support we focus on supporting your equine athlete’s lower legs. The main benefits of this application are to help prevent injuries by supporting biomechanics and increase circulation to reduce heat, swelling, and friction in the tendons and ligaments. The module will cover basic anatomy and give a step by step demonstration of this easy to apply, effective application that can be worn before, during, and after training!
Level 2 - Dive into our Equi-Tape Lower Leg Injuries Level where you gain comprehensive knowledge about equine anatomy and physiology to truly help your horse. We will discuss suspensory and tendon injuries, tears, rupture and sprains. Learn how to help horses recover from injuries with an Equi-Tape application designed to support the leg anatomy, reduce pain, increase circulation, and prevent further injury. The instructor demonstrates Equi-Taping applications from different angles and with the ability to watch the module on your time we know you will be confident in helping your horse recover faster.
Level 3 - Collateral Ligament Injuries we focus on the dynamics of a collateral ligament injury. Commonly missed or mis-diagnosed, a collateral ligament injury can be a challenge for many equestrians and equine healthcare professionals to successfully address. This module provides valuable education on anatomy and rehabilitation protocols that look at the whole horse. The application supports the proper operation of the anatomy without limiting normal range of motion to improve your horse’s prognosis of recovery.
- Level 4 - Contracted Tendons we focus on addressing the dynamics of contracted tendons and provide an application and protocols to effectively help your horse rehabilitate. We take a dive into anatomy, nutrition, biomechanics and share success stories! If you have a horse with contracted tendons, are a breeder or healthcare practitioner who deals with this issue, you will benefit from this course. The application is taught step-by-step and is designed to help correct anatomical structures and biomechanics movement.
