Appropriate physiotherapeutic intervention and rehabilitation techniques can greatly enhance outcomes in recovery following surgery and aid in return to normal function. This course will look at the immediate post-surgical care and early rehabilitation of canine and feline patients, with reference to both orthopaedic and neurological cases.

A combination of theory and practical sessions will be used to explore the interventions and techniques used in early rehabilitation and give you the confidence to use them in practice.

The theoretical component of this course aims to refresh your knowledge of anatomy and physiology, including tissue healing, so you can explore the basis for the interventions we choose to use with our patients and the principles behind their use.

A significant part of the day will be spent in practical sessions giving you the opportunity to practice the techniques discussed in the lectures.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Techniques for enhancing tissue healing
  • Thermotherapy
  • Electrotherapy
  • Manual techniques such as massage and stretching
  • Exercise therapy
  • Orthopaedic and neurological case discussions to explore recommended treatment plans

**Dogs are required for the practical demonstrations, please contact us at the time of booking to let us know if you will be bringing a dog with you**

Some feedback about this course...

The best thing is they choose their tutors carefully to ensure you have really great, interesting and friendly tutors. There’s plenty of hands on experience, small class sizes and the food is amazing :) my favourite place for CPD - Miteki Degawa
Excellent facilities- very conveniently located for transport links- have attended several practical surgical courses run here and it’s been by far the best standard of teaching. Central CPD on demand is also really useful for our practice. - Peter
I have had the pleasure of using Central CPD for a number of years. Whether it be attendance courses in a number of locations, online or at the LVS, I have always received great CPD, professionalism from the staff - Holly Bassett
