Rehabilitation for Hip Disease 2-day Workshop


Rehabilitation for Hip Disease 2-day Workshop

With Elena Saltis BSc, PTNZ, CCRT, NZAVPA, APA Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist, NZ Registered Physiotherapist

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.

By the end of this workshop delegates will learn to:

- Complete an extensive musculoskeletal examination of the hip joint, pelvis and sacroiliac joint
- Develop effective treatment programs using good clinical reasoning
- Effectively manage hip dysplasia in young through to geriatric patients
- Perform manual therapy to improve joint function, range of motion, and biomechanics of the hip joint, sacroiliac joint and pelvis
- Develop, prescribe and perform appropriate exercises for each stage of rehabilitation
- Effectively develop home programs for hip dysplasia patients
- Develop and implement both post-op and conservative management programs

This workshop is accredited for 14 NZVNA CPD points.
