Event Description

About this course

Are you aware of the benefits physiotherapy can offer to your surgical patients in the postoperative period? Do you want to understand the different types of rehabilitation techniques that are available for your patients? Would you like to broaden the services you can offer to your clients?

In this two-day course, you will learn the principles of physiotherapy, the different techniques and modalities that can be used in small animals as well as the indications and contraindications of these therapies. We will cover physiotherapeutic modalities such as manual therapies, physical modalities (including laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, TENS) and hydrotherapy.

Why do this course?

Lectures and practical exercises will help you plan postoperative physiotherapy as well as develop rehabilitation plans for nonsurgical conditions.
