    Sacropelvic myology explores the muscle structure of the dog and the horse. This lecture covers muscles of the pelvis as they attach to the hind limb and as they are related to the thorax.  This lecture includes some neuro anatomy.  The goal of this lecture is to orient the student with the anatomy of the animals with which they will be working and to allow them to begin to consider the changes to these animals that cause the issues we address.  Dr. Amy Hayek is the instructor.  Cranial myology; Identification of the anatomy of the specific animal is critical to effective, consistent treatment.  In order to be able to repeat the results, you must be aware of the anatomical differences.  This will also allow you to identify the compensatory changes that occur during the healing period as the animal excretes waste products from the tissues.  At the end of this course the student will be able to identify each muscle of the skull and understand its function.  Students will also have learned to look for neurological and mechanical changes to the cranial muscles as a means for defining symptoms and treatment.  Dr. Amy Hayek is the instructor.  The lecture Cervical Myology covers the muscles of the cervical region of the spine (the neck portion).  This lecture explores the changes in direction and function of the muscles of the neck.  Through this study we discover the ways in which animals use their neck to aid in orientation with the ground, with their environment and also how they act with and in response to that environment. Dr. Amy Hayek is the instructor. Thoracic Myology; The goals of this lecture are to familiarize the animal chiropractic student with the anatomy of the muscles and their function in the thoracic region.  It is important that students begin to understand the relationships between muscle groups and the behaviors animals express when these muscles are functioning and when they are not.  Learning the origin, insertion, action and innervation to each muscle will allow the student to begin to piece the whole picture together.  Dr. Amy Hayek is the instructor.  Lumbar Myology; the goal of this lecture is to orient the animal chiropractic student with the muscles, action and relationships of the abdominal and lumbar spinal muscles to the behavior of the animal. The student will be able to explain the relationships of the muscle structures of this region in a manner a bit more complex than the extent to which current veterinary texts explore this region.  Dr. Amy Hayek is the instructor.  The Thoracic Limb Myology; the goals of this lecture are to familiarize the animal chiropractic student with the anatomy of the muscles and their function in the thoracic limb.  It is important that students begin to understand the relationships between muscle groups and the behaviors animals express when these muscles are functioning and when they are not.  Learning the origin, insertion, action and innervation to each muscle will allow the student to begin to piece the whole picture together.  At the end of this lecture the student will be able to identify not only normal function but abnormal limb motion due to muscle dysfunction.  Dr. Amy Hayek is the instructor.  Pelvic Limb Myology is a course that examines the muscles of the limbs and their relationship to the forward motion of the animal.  The student will be able to identify the function of the muscles in the pelvic leg and changes in behavior of the animal due to changes in the function of these muscles ability to perform their function.
