VetPD - Veterinary Professional Development
Duration: 2 hour(s)
The field of rehabilitation of the equine athlete suffering from orthopaedic injuries has developed enormously over the past decades with an array of human therapeutic modalities having become available to equine practitioners. For the busy practicing vet it is however difficult to untangle which modalities to use for what type of injury, how to use them and to research clinical efficacies.This practical course covers how to devise therapeutic exercise protocols and adapt them to specific injuries and how to include physiotherapy as the foundation of rehabilitation of the equine athlete. The following therapeutic modalities will furthermore be covered in individual lectures by discussing their modes of action, indications for use, human and veterinary literature reviews and clinical experiences:Aquatic Therapy Underwater Treadmill & SwimmingWhole Body VibrationHyperbaric Oxygen TherapyCold & Hot TherapyExtracorporeal Shock Wave TherapyRadiofrequency TherapyTherapeutic UltrasoundLaser TherapyPulsed Electromagnetic TherapyThe 7 hours of case-based and practical session on live horses will allow attendees to further their practical skills on live horses in small groups and to discuss the above topics with the specialists.
