WVC 92nd Annual Conference
1-2-3 Step Manual Therapy for Post-operative Patients: Tips & Protocols for Teaching Pet Owners Hands-On Techniques During Discharge
Specialty Veterinary Technician Session: Discharge of post-operative surgical patients can be overwhelming, especially when clients "require" additional time for patient recovery. Participants will learn the basics of massage, passive range of motion and stretch techniques that can be used safely for any patient and can be taught to any veterinary clients. This course will be supported by references of text books/text book chapters, peer reviewed articles and effective videos for referencing your clients during discharge. This lecture is also intended to streamline rehabilitation information for your discharge instructions for post-operative rehabilitation for the orthopedic patient.
