About the course

Hip dysplasia is among the most common orthopaedic conditions affecting dogs. Joint laxity is responsible for abnormal development of the femoral head and acetabulum, leading to excessive wear of the articular cartilage and secondary osteoarthritis. Rehabilitation is invaluable in managing these patients, either conservatively, or after surgery.

This two-day workshop teaches practical manual therapy techniques and therapeutic exercises using real patients. You will leave the day with the skills to start using hip rehab as a new service in your clinic.

You will be taught to perform a complete musculoskeletal assessment of the hip joint, with consideration of pathophysiology, biomechanics, gait analysis and anatomy of the hip joint mechanism.

Non-surgical management of hip dysplasia will be discussed, using clinical reasoning and a multimodal approach including:

  • Non-pharmacologic osteoarthritis management
  • Exercise treatment programs and planning Manual therapy
  • Therapeutic rehabilitation exercises
  • Activity management
  • Post op management following FHO, THR, JPS and open reduction internal fixation surgery will also be covered.

Suitable for

Veterinarians and Veterinary Nurses
