Katie Meredith will discuss How to fit Hydrotherapy and other modalities in to your practice. Physiotherapy Treatment techniques and Hydrotherapy. Following on from the brief introduction to physiotherapy, this talk aims to discuss the various treatment modalities available to physiotherapists for the care of the veterinary patient. Techniques vary greatly depending on what the physiotherapist is trying to target, and many techniques can be adapted for different effects, depending on the compliance of the individual patient.
We will explore a range of electrotherapy techniques touching briefly upon the different effects of each type (of electrotherapy) and their application, manual physiotherapy techniques, and methods of exercise rehabilitation. In conjunction with this we will then discuss the use of hydrotherapy for rehabilitation and explain how the pool and underwater treadmill should be used in order to gain maximum benefit for the patient.
