Photonic Health – Horse Assessment

, , Leave a comment

Welcome to the assessment point
of our video. What we’re gonna do is show you a basic assessment, how to do that on a horse. You already got done just doing your bladder opening. I’m going to take, what we use, is an RSVP pen. I like using the end because it can give me different
reactions with the horse. So, what I’m going to do is, I’m going to come up to point A, which is just going to be located right behind the ears and this groove, if you feel up here.
Put the pen not straight up and down but at an angle and just rub back and forth.
See if you get a reaction. That’s a slight one, where she tipped her head
away. Come straight down from there you’re going to go and do a w along the
vertebrae and then C D and E. You’re going to a hit both of these, all three of these muscles coming down. So, you’re going to rub across the 1st, 2nd and
3rd. So, C D and E. This muscle here is called the brachial cephalic. I’m going to
take and turn my pen to the inside of it and rub back and forth. That’s point F.
from here, we’re going to do point G. Starting from the point of the front of shoulder, I’m going to come back with the pen and challenge the muscle slightly. Come
down, put my hand on the opposite side of the withers and push in and see if I get
a little reaction. I got a little bit there. Alright, next point is going to be
along what we call the shelf. Above the shelf of the ribs. So, I’m just gonna put
my hand on the top of scapula, come down. You’re going to find a deep hole here. On
the backside, you’re going to find the tough of the hair or the back part of what’s
called the coxal or the hip. I’m going to make what’s
called an equilateral triangle. That’s going go from the hip to the
rib and come up. That point up, is a point which we call bladder 23. Another
way to do this, put your thumb on it on the right side
of horse, come against the rib and where your middle finger lands that’s
where it is. I’m gonna draw a line from there back to my first point and that’s
what I’m going to work along. This point to here to here is H if you
come up to center you feel a dip and a hole, that’s where we’re gonna go from. So, I’m just going to come along and I’m gonna strike above and below that line
and see the kind of reactions I’m getting. Getting slight ones.
I’m going to turn, be facing this way, and do the back side. You can see
there’s some reactions going on there at this point. I just want you to know where
the reactions are and that’s where you’ll put your light. Alright, the next
line I’m going to do is about a hand’s width away from the center of the horse. So,
there’s gonna be a line right here and I’m just gonna go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Keeping note of this point here which
is bladder 27. Is usually the one that we get more. So it’s I, that’s J,
K. Last rib. I’m gonna go back and forth. Not much there. L I’m gonna take and find
the top of the coxal and I’m going to draw a comma and fall into it and see
what anything going on back here. M underneath the coxal bone. N
I’m going to go all the way down to the femur and I’m going to draw around that, see what I have, good. O, I’m going to strike the poverty groove. If I have nothing going on and I’m going to come back and rub in three areas. Alright, the next point we’re gonna work on is what we call our P points. I’m going to start at the top, the back of the, what’s
called the sacrum, to here. I’m going to make myself a line and then divide it into
three points or three lines. I’m going to draw, bring my hand down, stop, stop and
fall off. Typically, if I have a problem here, I’ve got something going on in the
back saddle area. Then, I will come along the sacrum itself, on the close side to me
and I’m going to rub back and forth which would be lateral to the sacrum. I’m
gonna move to the front, come down to the back of the area of where the bottom of
the withers is. Come down one inch and go forward and you’ll see I got a little
flinch there. That means there’s something a little bit of
tightness in the front saddle. Then, the last one I’m going to do, is come back
from my point G, come up at a 45. I’m gonna feel the scapula spine bone here
and I’m just gonna push in slightly here to see if I’ve got some reaction going
on there. That’s how you do your basic assessment.
