Description

Details

This course will provide the participant with the didactic material for selected physical agent modalities used in canine physical rehabilitation. Superficial heating and cooling agents, therapeutic ultrasound, extracorporeal shockwave treatment, laser therapy, and electrical stimulation will be covered as well as theoretical clinical applications with cases. This course also provides the participant with the basic skills necessary to prescribe and provide therapeutic exercise programs for dogs. Benefits and risks associated with therapeutic exercise programs will be covered along with outcome assessment of exercise programs. Topics covered include joint biomechanics, exercise physiology, range of motion and stretching, gait training, strengthening exercises, balance and proprioceptive exercises, aquatic exercises, and exercises for wellness/prevention. Outcome measures (goniometry, circumferential measurements, etc.) will also be covered in this course.  

ONLINE LECTURE ONLY - Must be completed prior to attending labs.

Learning Objectives

After successful completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
 

  1.  Describe the differences in acute and chronic inflammation and the proper signs of each.
  2.  Understand the basic regulatory issues involved with canine rehabilitation.
  3.  Demonstrate proper understanding of the general guidelines when using physical agents as modalities.
  4.  Understand the principles of heat as therapeutic agent including its biological effects.
  5.  Understand the principles of cold as therapeutic agent including its biological effects.
  6.  Describe the typical parameters used in therapeutic ultrasound in small animal practice.
  7.  Describe safe technique in preparing and applying ultrasound on dogs and understand both the thermal
     and non-thermal effects of ultrasound.
  8.  Understand the basic principles of electrical stimulation including parameters, electrodes, motor stimulation,
     sensory stimulation, and edema reduction.
  9.  Understand the basic principles of laser therapy in veterinary practice and demonstrate proper knowledge
     of parameters for indicated pathologies.
  10.  Understand the basic principles of extracorporeal shockwave therapy in veterinary practice and demonstrate
     proper knowledge of parameters for indicated pathologies.
  11.  Describe techniques of massage in small animal practice including its benefits, effects and general
     considerations.
  12.  Acquire skills in various exercise techniques and their effects on the body including treadmilling, stairs and
     inclines, cavaletti rails, dancing, wheel barrowing, etc.
  13.  Prescribe and provide therapeutic exercise programs for dogs to improve range of motion, strength,
     balance, endurance, and improved function.
  14.  Understand the principles of proprioception and demonstrate useful proprioceptive exercises during
     canine rehabilitation.
  15.  Describe various outcome measures used for the assessment of rehabilitation programs.
  16.  Develop basic skills in understanding joint function and demonstrate proper technique with goniometry.
  17.  Describe the benefits and physical properties of water and understand the practical use of aquatic therapy
     in rehabilitation
  18.  Demonstrate an understanding of how to safely progress a dog in a rehabilitation program.
  19.  Develop a basic understanding of joint mobilizations along with normal and abnormal end feels.
  20.  Understand the normal and abnormal characteristics of canine gait and be able to describe each joint
     relative to different parts of a gait cycle.
  21.  Describe the basic principles of splinting techniques for dogs
