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 2-day 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.

In the mornings the following topics will be covered in well-illustrated lectures and case presentations:

  • 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

Open and frank discussions are encouraged during the dedicated question times and the speakers will share their personal experiences (successes and failures) with attendees.

In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees the opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and equine specimens 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
  • Ultrasound of the back & Facet Joint injections
  • Saddle fit assessment
  • Clinical examination of the pelvis and hip
  • Ultrasound of the pelvis & hip
  • Sacroiliac injection techniques on specimens     

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions). Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available. 

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
