3 Steps to success

Do we need rehab if we have an excellent orthopedic and neurologic surgeon?
YES, particularly in this case, but also for the many patients we may not think of primarily in that respect, like geriatric or obese patients, young dogs, working and sports dogs to prevent injury and many more.

  • Step 1: Grab a lunch and meet: get a first insight why the best surgeon does not replace rehab and why teamwork is key.
  • Step 2: Get your first tools – no big investment but maximum outcome: join us for the online symposium on 9th June 2021
  • Step 3: Get your team ready - we support you in your academic education to become a Certified Canine or Equine Rehabilitation Practitioner

Small Animal Webinar:
Treatment of Iliopsoas Injuries with Manual Therapy, Pulsed Shockwave Therapy and a Home Exercise Program

  • Iliopsoas injuries are common in all active dogs and there are many methods of addressing the injury.
  • Manual therapy in the form of cross friction massage as well as joint mobilization is impactful in reducing the healing time and promoting the multimodal approach
  • Pulsed shockwave therapy to both the origin and the insertion of the iliopsoas muscle is advantageous to promote the multimodal approach.
