Do you want to further your knowledge of equine sports medicine and rehabilitation? Would you like to understand better some of the techniques used in equine rehabilitation? This course is aimed at veterinarians with a particular interest in equine sports medicine and rehabilitation who have a good basic knowledge of the subject.

This course aims to provide delegates with a better understanding of selected modalities and techniques available today in equine rehabilitation and how to best integrate them in a general equine practice. After a brief introduction of what to expect from the course, delegates will be presented with an overview of neuromotor control in equine rehabilitation and rehabilitation of horses with spinal dysfunction with a particular emphasis on kissing spine. Kinesiology taping, vibration therapy and laser will then be discussed in more detail. Finally, some clinical cases will be discussed in an interactive session where participants will be welcome to bring their own cases to attention.

Why do this course?
To increase your knowledge and understanding of what equine rehabilitation can offer so that you are able to provide an improved/extended service to your equine patients recovering from injury.

The webinars for this course will be pre-recorded and can be viewed as recorded versions throughout the course. A live Q&A session with the tutor will run on the following dates at 1.00pm London time.
