Sports Medicine Workshop
Course Dates: 5/7/2020 – 5/9/2020 | Each day the course begins at 8:00a ends at 5:00p
Skill Level: General
Course Description: 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 how to diagnose and treat challenging soft tissue injuries and intra-articular conditions. 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, shoulder, and carpal/tarsal areas) for musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound and (shoulder, elbow, stifle) diagnostic needle scope will be demonstrated and practiced on cadavers. Treatment of elbow conditions (elbow dysplasia and OA) under needle scope guidance will also be demonstrated and practiced. 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.
