An Introduction to Equine Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy
This course is aimed at Equine Veterinary Nurses, Vet Techs, Student Veterinary Physiotherapists and Equine Veterinary Physiotherapists. Wanting to review the basics, or even canine Veterinary Physiotherapists wanting to venture into the Equine world.
The aim is to give you an overview of equine musculoskeletal therapies, routes to qualification, and how the therapies differ.
We will go over some basic anatomy and spend some time looking at the equine distal limb which is of specific importance.
We will also cover some basic massage techniques that you can start to employ with the patients in your care, and will take a look at the different treatment modalities that are available – from newer ones through to some more simple and traditional ones.
