Rehabilitation on Canine Front Limb Injuries

Trainer : Alan Gardner
Cost of CPD : £50
6 hours IAAT accredited

The front limbs and shoulders are subject to concussive forces, which can result in soft tissue strains.  In a performance dog, this may show as a reluctance to work or abnormal gait pattern.  This workshop will cover both electro and manual therapies, typically used to treat these injuries.  Additionally, we will review physiotherapy based exercises to treat both acute and chronic strains and rehabilitate the dog back into work.

Having a working knowledge of dog anatomy is suggested (covered in Unit 1) to obtain maximum benefit from the day.

Alan is an animal physiotherapist specialising in fitness and rehabilitation of agility dogs.  The recommendations presented are based on actual case studies and therefore have been proven in application.
