Prerequisites: This course consists of 3 days of in-person, hands-on learning. The course is worth 24 hours CE credit. The course is open to licensed veterinarians, physical therapists, and veterinary technicians/nurses who have taken Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation.

Veterinarians, physical therapists and veterinary technicians/nurses that are certified in canine rehabilitation by UT/VAHL (CCRP), Healing Oasis (VMRT), Chi Insititute (CCRV), or CuraCore (CRPM); and veterinarians who have earned their DACVSMR and are practicing canine rehabilitation are eligible to take this course.

Veterinary technicians/nurses must submit a current Employment Agreement Letter indicating that there is a veterinarian or physical therapist either certified in canine rehabilitation working in their practice or registered for Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation.

Course Description: The fascial system has been gaining importance in the diagnosis and treatment of locomotor problems. In addition to adhesions and shortening, as fascia also has nerve endings, it also has a role in pain and motor coordination. The IASTM (Instrumented Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), Cupping and Flossing techniques will be presented in theory and practice to show how this fast and effective technique can assist in rehabilitation.

The kinesiology taping technique, widely used in humans, is now growing rapidly for small animals. This course empowers participants to use the kinesiology taping technique, an important physical therapy modality that can be used alone or as a complement to other techniques. Some of the benefits that this technique brings to the animal patient include: pain reduction, edema reduction, increased mobility of scars, improvement of proprioception, influence the kinetic lines, compress or decompress structures and correction of posture or abnormal movement. The practical part will demonstrate the application of the technique in the most common orthopedic problems in small animals.
