About This Course

Sports injuries occur in working and sporting dogs, but also arise from everyday activities and weekend fun. This three day course is designed to help you learn more about veterinary sports medicine. Lectures will provide participants with the basic knowledge of how to utilize musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound for diagnosing soft tissue injuries, techniques for using diagnostic needle scope for diagnosing intra-articular pathology, and treatment of injuries using intra-articular regenerative medicine injections. Techniques and anatomical landmarks (including iliopsoas, stifle, elbow, shoulder, hip, and carpal/tarsal areas) for musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound and diagnostic needle scope will be demonstrated and practiced on cadavers. Participants will learn proper collection techniques for platelet rich plasma and bone marrow aspiration in a clinical setting. Processing techniques will be demonstrated and participants will practice finding anatomical landmarks and applicable injection sites on cadavers.

Objectives:

• Attendees will learn and practice concepts and techniques for intra-articular regenerative medicine injections including stem cell and platelet rich plasma injections for the shoulder, elbow, carpus, hip, stifle, and hock. Platelet rich plasma processing and stem cell collection will be demonstrated and practiced on cadavers. In addition uses and indications for hyaluronic acid will be discussed.
• Attendees will learn and practice concepts and techniques for diagnosing soft tissue sports-related injuries using musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound. The primary areas of focus would include iliopsoas, stifle, shoulder, and carpal/tarsal areas. Techniques and anatomical landmarks will be demonstrated and practiced on cadavers.
• Attendees will learn and practice concepts and techniques for diagnostic needle scope (needle arthroscopy), which is a tool for diagnosing intra-articular pathology as well as a diagnostic tool for objective follow-up. Attendees will be able to practice their newly learned skills on cadavers.

Coffee and snacks are provided throughout the day.

Lunch provided on full-day courses.

Dinners to go – We’ve found that at the end of a long course day participants are looking forward to returning to their hotel to relax. We realize that our preferred lodging partner doesn’t have a restaurant on site or located close to the hotel. To help make things easier for you we will provide a hot meal, at the end of each full course day, with to go containers so you can bring it back to the hotel with you. On the last day of the course we will provide something a little easier to transport for those heading to the airport. This will not apply to those courses that end midafternoon – only those that end at noon or 5:00PM.
