Hindlimb Lameness Diagnostics (incl. Objective Gait Analysis) & Therapies

Friday, September 28, 2018 to Saturday, September 29, 2018
Location: 
Hamilton, Canada
Hotel/Facility: 
Halton Equine Veterinary Services

This two-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians who have experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach.   Discussions on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems), objective gait analysis and on systemic and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off. 

In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical and case-based sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 – 4 people per ultrasound machine) and to discuss all aspects of Hindlimb Lameness diagnostics and therapeutics with the specialists. Each attendee will be rotating through the following practical stations: Subjective lameness examination; Objective gait analysis (Equinosis Q – Lameness Locator);  Nerve & joint blocks (incl. ultrasound-guidance);  Ultrasound of the metatarsus, tarsus or stifle joint (region chosen by each group individually);  2 hours of clinical cases evaluated via subjective and objective gait analysis.
