About this course

Suitable for equine vets and physiotherapists

Equine rehabilitation is an important part of getting horses back into work after injury or surgery. 

The value of the vet-physio relationship cannot be overemphasised in terms of maximising outcomes in our patients following injury or surgery. We will explore how to construct rehabilitation programmes and the role physiotherapy plays in recovery from surgery or during conservative therapy. We will also cover how to optimise recovery from tendon and ligament injury, back pain and explore novel ancillary treatments and their efficacy.

This course consists of recorded webinars and a day of practical sessions. The recorded lectures allow you to learn at your own pace and they can be listened to at a convenient time - these are a prerequisite for attending the practical component.

Why do this course?
To gain confidence in rehabilitation patients following injury or surgery.
