Course Description

In both humans and canines, dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system affects overall quality of movement and promotes the development of compensatory movement. In canine patients, compensatory movement patterns associated with physical imbalance develop over time and may affect patient quality of life. By using normal canine gait and functional movement patterns, understanding how structural characteristics of the thoracic and pelvic limbs affect movement, and objective outcome assessment measurement tools, practitioners will be able to recognize common compensatory postures and identify abnormalities when using therapeutic exercises to screen for imbalances.
