An Introduction to Physiotherapy for the Geriatric Patient

An Introduction to Physiotherapy for the Geriatric Patient

Course outline:

This course will cover initial assessment of patients suffering from osteo-arthritis, and the basic veterinary physiotherapy techniques you can use to help improve comfort and mobility in geriatric patients, as well as consideration of the home environment - which is an essential yet often overlooked aspect for these patients.

Your learning from the course will enable you to create patient treatment plans, and ultimately set up basic physiotherapy clinics that will act as a perfect adjunct to senior clinics; and will help owners to help their pets as you will be able to teach them how to utilise some of the basic methods.
