Back, Sacroiliac & Pelvic Problems of the Horse
A 2-Day Practical Course

Conditions affecting the back, pelvis and sacroiliac region are common in the horse and can cause pain, poor performance and lameness. Over the past decade the axial skeleton has been extensively researched; this new knowledge combined with recently published retrospective studies have shed light on these previously poorly understood problems. This 2-day highly practical course is suitable for veterinarians from mixed and equine practice who are keen to update their knowledge on the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and up-to-date therapy of back, pelvic and sacroiliac problems in the horse. This course was designed to maximise the learning experience for all attendees with 7 hours of practical sessions (live horses & equine specimens) between both afternoons covering the Examination technique of the back & pelvis, Ultrasonography of the back, Saddle fit assessment, Sacroiliac injection techniques and Ultrasonography of the pelvis & hip in small groups (2 – 4 vets / ultrasound machine).
