"This is the best course that I have ever taken." –Yu-Hsin Lien, DVM, MVM, PhD, CVA, CCRT, Taipei, Taiwan

Faculty: Hillary Greatting, DVM, DACVIM (Neuro), CCRT, Sasha A. Foster, MS Physical Therapy, CCRT

Prerequisites: Veterinarians, physical therapists and veterinary technicians/nurses that have successfully completed Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation (including the exam) can subscribe. Veterinary professionals certified in canine rehabilitation by UT/VAHL (CCRP), Healing Oasis (VMRT), Chi Institute (CCRV), or CuraCore (CRPM), and veterinarians who have earned their DACVSMR and are practicing canine rehabilitation are also welcome to subscribe. Veterinary technicians/nurses need to submit a valid Employment Agreement Letter.

Course Description: Canine Neurology and Neuro Rehabilitation teaches therapists how to evaluate, interpret neuroimaging, develop a problem list, create a treatment plan and complete the treatment plan for a variety of neurological patients including intervertebral disc disease, lumbosacral disease, degenerative myelopathy, peripheral neuropathy, and fibrocartilagenous embolism. Upon completion of the course, the attendees will have a good clinical understanding of basic neuroanatomy and neurolocalization. Students also will learn how to develop and execute a conservative treatment plan in the absence of in-depth diagnostics.
