Online CPD for Hydrotherapists

Complement your services by integrating this Galen Myotherapy CPD into your hydrotherapy practice to offer enhanced rehabilitation outcomes. 


This course will bring a new perspective to your hydrotherapy practice and hone your observational skills to better support your clients.


By looking at the relationship between posture and myofascial tension you will have a greater understanding of how it impacts on a dog’s movement and gait from a functional perspective. 


This CPD is for canine hydrotherapists who are looking for a targeted course on how to assess a dog’s posture, identify muscle imbalances in order to implement an enhanced rehabilitation programme. 


We will also guide you through appropriate environmental and activity advice along with the anatomical rationale.


The course will include an overview on the vital role of fascia as well as ideas on how to incorporate the Galen Comfort Scale, as an observational and measurable tool, for your canine guardians.
