Jean Luc Cornille
Soundness specialist; Science of Motion
The Science of Motion approach works based on scientific proof that the abnormality exists first and it is the repetition of abnormal movement that causes injury. By correcting the abnormality early enough, it is possible to prevent the pathological changes that cause lameness. Likewise, even in lame horses, correcting the inherent abnormality is imperative for recovery and soundness.
This approach has been successful in rehabilitating many different chronic disabilities including severe cases of navicular disease and kissing spines.
