I'm one of 2 (maybe 3) technicians that perform laser therapy at our feline only practice. I am hoping that you know of courses that I can take to further my knowledge and skills. I am also wondering if you have any advice for preventing wrist/arm pain after performing laser treatments? Thank you!
Can you recognise different compensation patterns? 🤔

Hi guys. I was hoping to get some help with a case. My cousin's dog was diagnosed with FCE. What are some physical therapy activities she can do to help her? I was thinking range of motion, massage, and underwater treadmill
Hello there! Looking for some advice. I am half way through the CCRP program and need to select an elective for my next section. The 2 I narrowed it down to from those offered was canine pain management or treatment of osteoarthritis. Both would allow me certification in said subject. Both cost the same amount and both are extremely interesting. Just wanted to hear what those in the field would recommend since I can only take 1 at this time. Thanks in advance!
Does anyone have any thoughts on this program? I've heard some concerns from dog trainers but have not yet heard anything from the veterinary side and I get asked about it periodically. Do you think this would be a worthwhile investment for a tech getting started in rehab and fitness?
