Group CPD for Vet Nurses
Complement and bring added value to your services by integrating the principles of Galen Myotherapy. We’ll bring a new perspective to your nursing practice and hone your team's observational skills to better support your clients. This knowledge can be applied directly when interpreting canine posture as part of your K-Laser treatments along with your osteoarthritis and obesity support clinics. You will be given the practical skills on how best to support your clients from puppy to adulthood within a physical development perspective.
We will teach you targeted functional exercises and two massage techniques which you can give your clients to do at home to support their dog’s health. The course will examine the relationship between posture and myofascial tension so your team will gain a better understanding of how it impacts on a dog’s movement and gait from a functional perspective.
'Many thanks for delivering such a brilliant CPD! Galen’s passion for dogs and openness in sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience made for engaging lectures and rewarding practical sessions. Galen Myotherapy has shown me a new way to approach assessment and treatment, consider functional movement and fascia, and many of my patients are benefitting from it'.

Topic 1: Postural assessment
Postural assessment discussion of three case study dogs/clients from photos and videos (supplied pre-programme). Looking at detailed aspects of each of the dogs muscle symmetry, postural alignment, muscle tone and how it can translate to dysfunctional movement patterns in and out of a hydrotherapy environment.
Topic 2: Fascia The understanding of fascia or myofascial connections are now acknowledged to be fundamental to a successful rehabilitation programme. We’ll be discussing the role of fascia from a functional perspective, looking at the implications and impact within rehabilitation. Topic 3: Functional movement
Understand the true meaning of functional movement and why it is so important within a canine specific rehabilitation programme. Assessing different dogs movement patterns and how that relates to the importance of an individualised programme.
You will learn functional exercises that you can give to clients to do at home, which will help to maximise your hydrotherapy sessions.
Topic 4: Implementation of the Galen Comfort Scale©
How you can incorporate the Galen Comfort scale© to assess pain and behaviour, offering quantifiable outcomes to your clients.
