The Enigma of the Iliopsoas

K9 Sports Injury – Prevention and Rehab of the Iliopsoas – $59 for 45-days access


Class Description

Bobbie has teamed together with Dr. Debbie Gross of Wizard of Paws to bring you a short class specific to Iliopsoas (Psoas) injury! This injury is often seen in  canine sports athletes due to overuse of the muscles, splayed rear legs on slippery ground, under trained long jumps, and lack of strength in the core muscle group, just to name a few culprits.

In this 4 week class, our goal is help you understand how to reduce the chance of Iliopsoas injury, decipher a Veterinarian diagnosis when your dog has injured the “Psoas”, recommendations on what the process is to return your dog to activity and of course when to return to your chosen sport. Now you can view all of the material AND the feedback presented in this class as a self-guided student!

Learn about the Iliopsoas muscle and to see exercises designed to improve strength, stretching to improve flexibility and get a guideline into the movements that affect these muscles.  

Debbie and Bobbie were both in this highly dynamic classroom giving input on homework assignment and videos.

It should be noted that this class was not designed to diagnose or treat an Iliopsoas condition.   This class was designed to educate you on preventing Iliopsoas injury, diagnosis and recovery.

Self guided students will receive all of the content originally presented in the class, as well as access to view the discussion forum from the class – Bobbie and Deb’s feedback, as well as the submissions of the students who took the class – for 45 days.

In the K9 sports world there is a lot of talk of injury to the Iliopsoas muscle.   Many dog owners walk out of their Veterinarians’ office scratching their heads when give a diagnosis of a “torn Iliopsoas”, and wonder “what is the Iliopsoas muscle and what does it do for my dog”.  The iliopsoas or the ‘psoas’ for slang is a complicated muscle and does more than most think!

Testimonials

psoastestimonialpicI registered as auditor to Bobbie’s class The enigma of the iliopsoas out of pure interest. I didn’t think I had a dog with a psoas problem, even though my dog had started to move with a shortened rear movement some months earlier. He was checked by our regular physiotherapist, who noted some lack of muscle mass in the rear, but nothing significantly different from his earlier check ups, he also checked ok for the iliopsoas. He got some treatments, and got a bit better, but not good. When the class began I started to see similarities between my dog’s movements and the descriptions in class, and in spite of him not having a diagnosis of iliopsoas injury, I started to do the exercises and stretches suggested in class with him. It turned out to be the key to get him going again. He started to use his rear end in a much better way, and with better movements he was able to do a lot of things that earlier on had been very hard for him, which again made him use his rear more. The best thing is that he is not only moving much better, he is also a much happier dog now, when the problems that for months were undetected has been sorted out. For me this proves that you can never learn to much, and even things you don’t think will be of immediate help can turn into real eye openers!

Balance Your Blades:

Understanding shoulder injury in performance dogs – Taught by Bobbie Lyons and Dr. Debbie Gross. 45 Day Access.

Class Description

This 45 day access self guided course will describe the anatomy of the complicated shoulder and forelimb complex with relation to performance events in the canine athlete. The mechanisms of shoulder injuries will be explained as well as the potential reasons for shoulder injuries. Prevention, strengthening, stretching, and conditioning exercises will be described in depth through this interactive class.

This class benefits dogs that are involved in performance, dogs with previous front assembly injury (should, elbow, carpus) and dogs that are more prone to shoulder injury. Learning how to “prevent” injury is just as important as rehabilitating a injury after it happens.   Join us for this short class packed full of information.

Debbie and Bobbie were both in this highly dynamic classroom giving input on homework assignment and videos.

Self guided students will receive all of the content originally presented in the class, as well as access to view the discussion forum from the class – Bobbie and Deb’s feedback, as well as the submissions of the students who took the class – for 45 days.
