VetPD Orthopaedic Rehabilitation of the Equine Athlete – A 2-Day Practical Course

26 Sep 2018 08:00 - 27 Sep 2018 17:45

The field of rehabilitation of the equine athlete suffering from orthopedic 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 2-day 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 course fee includes lunches, coffee/tea breaks, extensive electronic course notes, a wine & cheese reception and a certificate of attendance. On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions). Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the practical nature of this course.

This course is suitable for RCVS Modules: B-EP.3; C-E.2; C-E.4; C-E.5; C-E.6; C-E.7; C-E.15; C-E.16; C-EP.17
