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 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.

In the mornings the following topics will be covered in well-illustrated lectures and case presentations:

Clinical examination of the back
Anatomy & Imaging of the back
Diagnostic techniques for back conditions
Common conditions of the back
Less common conditions of the back
Saddle fit assessment
Sacroiliac disease – Pathophysiology & Diagnosis
Sacroiliac disease – Injections & Therapy
Clinical examination of the pelvis and hip
Imaging of the pelvis and hip
Soft tissue and muscle conditions of the pelvis
Bony problems affecting the pelvis and hip
Open and frank discussions are encouraged during the dedicated question times and the speakers will share their personal experiences (successes and failures) with attendees.

In the afternoons, 7 hours of practical sessions will give attendees the opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and equine specimens and to ask questions in small groups (2 – 4 attendees / ultrasound machine), all under the supervision of specialists. The following practical sessions will be covered during the course:

Clinical examination of the back
Ultrasound of the back & Facet Joint injections
Saddle fit assessment
Clinical examination of the pelvis and hip
Ultrasound of the pelvis & hip
Sacroiliac injection techniques on specimens
The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions). Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.
