COURSE DESCRIPTION

Conditions affecting the back, pelvis and sacroiliac region are common in the horse and can cause pain, poor performance and lameness. Over the past decade the axial skeleton has been extensively researched; this new knowledge combined with recently published retrospective studies have shed light on these previously poorly understood problems. This practical course is suitable for veterinarians from mixed and equine practice who are keen to update their knowledge on the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and up-to-date therapy of back, pelvic and sacroiliac problems in the horse.

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Back, Sacroiliac & Pelvic Problems of the Horse':

  • If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on office@vetpd.com for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.

The online Lecture Series addresses the following hot topics via well-illustrated, case-discussions providing a platform for the panel of speakers to share pitfalls, erroneous clinical conclusions and useful tips and tricks:

  • Clinical examination of the back
  • Anatomy & Imaging of the back
  • Diagnostic techniques for back conditions
  • Common conditions of the back
  • Less common conditions of the back
  • Saddle fit assessment
  • Sacroiliac disease – Pathophysiology & Diagnosis
  • Sacroiliac disease – Injections & Therapy
  • Clinical examination of the pelvis and hip
  • Imaging of the pelvis and hip
  • Soft tissue and muscle conditions of the pelvis
  • Bony problems affecting the pelvis and hip

Day 1 starts at 15:00h with 3 hours of interactive Case-Discussions, Q&A which will give attendees the unique opportunity to apply what they have learned during Lecture Series in discussion with the world-renowned specialists.  This will then be followed by the obligatory Wine & Cheese Reception allowing for attendees to socialise with colleagues and the speakers/instructors.

On the second day, 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees the opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and Equine Lumbar Facet & Sacroiliac Joint Injection Simulators and to ask questions in small groups (2 – 4 attendees / ultrasound machine), all under the supervision of specialists. The following practical sessions will be covered during the course:

  • Clinical Examination of the Back, SI Region, Pelvis & Hip   
  • Ultrasound of the Back & Facet Joint Injection Techniques      
  • Saddle Fit Assessment
  • Back, Sacroiliac & Pelvic Case-Discussions   
  • Ultrasound of the Sacroiliac Region, Pelvis & Hip
  • Sacroiliac Injection Techniques      

The course fee includes coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, lunch and a certificate of attendance. To participate in the On-Location Case-Discussions & Practical Sessions, attendees are required to have first worked through the Lecture Series (included in the price).  Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.

This course is suitable for RCVS Modules:  B-EP.3;  C-E.4;  C-E.6;  C-E.7;  C-E.15;  C-E.17; C-VDI.5
