    Hip dysplasia is among the most common orthopaedic conditions affecting dogs. Joint laxity is responsible for abnormal development of the femoral head and acetabulum, leading to excessive wear of the articular cartilage and secondary osteoarthritis. Rehabilitation is invaluable in managing these patients, either conservatively, or after surgery. This two-day workshop teaches practical manual therapy techniques and therapeutic exercises using real patients. You will leave the day with the skills to start using hip rehab as a new service in your clinic.
