Introduction to Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy and hydrotherapy are now becoming acceptable treatment adjuncts in veterinary practice to treat chronic non-surgical conditions conservatively such as hip and elbow dysplasia.
Surgical outcomes following cruciate ligament surgery and fracture repairs can be enhanced with physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to return the patient back to the highest level of function and to prevent secondary complications and the patient developing chronic pain issues.
This 20 minute eCPD tutorial will explore musculoskeletal conditions commonly seen in veterinary practice which could benefit from physiotherapy and hydrotherapy and will include:
- Physiotherapy modalities
- Physiotherapy assessment
- Physiotherapy treatment techniques
- Progression of treatment
- Outcome measures
- Physiotherapy case study
This CPD tutorial is worth 20 minutes towards your RCVS requirements.
