Rehabilitation for the Animal Chiropractic
Animal Rehabilitation covers ways to help an animal get optimal healing from the chiropractic adjustment. Just as treating a human for a sore throat is no help when they go back to breathing smoke all day, animals need help regaining their health outside of the office visit. This course will aid the student in recognizing when to address these needs and how to engage animal owners in participating in the health of their animals. It covers territory on how to return injured and ill animals to their normal level of activity with the goal in mind to optimize their performance. In this course students learn increasing levels of physical care that can aid their patients in returning to functional lives. Animal Rehabilitation III is a course that further develops the idea of using therapy to bring animal patients back to normal. In this lecture, Dr. Ormston introduces several techniques that require more equipment and that often appeal to animal owners who are interested in regaining athletic function for their animals. At the end of this lecture students will have been oriented to many of the more high tech options for aiding animals in making the most out of their chiropractic adjustment and regaining health. Students who complete this course will have an organized understanding of different levels of rehabilitation they can use to bring their patients along.

Always love the online courses- much easier to fit into my schedule and I can learn at my pace and review where I want to. A good introduction to rehabilitation…
Convenience of study from home. Thank you for that!!! Detailed presentation of value of trimming dogs' nails, and how to do it (also covered by Judith Shoemaker in her course, and I love it). Some details about the values of certain rehab exercises, uphill vs downhill, which muscle groups seem targeted - especially helpful for me as I am starting to encounter fibrotic myopathy patients. I feel like we practitioners are getting exposure to a lot of the ideas presented here before the course, and would love a deeper understanding of the exercises, as well as a more thorough explanation of the PLR-exercise to tone extensors!..
