The world's largest faculty of veterinary medicine”
Society demands veterinary professionals experienced in working with equines and with extensive knowledge of Electrophysical Agents of Rehabilitation in Horses. Don’t think twice and study with us”
Most of the electrophysical equipment discussed within this Postgraduate Certificate represents a significant investment for veterinary physiotherapists, so it is necessary to understand its underlying scientific concepts and the therapeutic effects and applications, in order to choose the most appropriate therapies for the cases that often arise in clinical practice.
Thus, this program covers the different types of electrical currents used in physiotherapy and rehabilitation, which continue to be a basic tool in clinical practice, due to their versatility and ease of use: types of TENS, muscular electrostimulation, interferential and other electrical currents of interest. In addition, there will be a review of fundamental underlying concepts and scientific theory. Another important therapy for clinical practice is ultrasound, which has been used in human physiotherapy for many years, while in veterinary medicine it has been relegated by other therapies, but it has enjoyed renewed popularity thanks to new publications on its usefulness.
In the field of equine physiotherapy, shock waves have been used for more than 15 years, with numerous scientific articles supporting their clinical use, making related knowledge and skills for application essential. However, other innovative techniques such as percutaneous electrolysis offer promising results in the treatment of chronic tendinitis.
This Postgraduate Certificate provides students with specialist tools and skills to enhance their professional practice, and key competencies such as knowledge of the day-to-day work of the veterinary professional, and responsibility in the monitoring and supervision of their work, as well as communication skills for effective teamwork.
Additionally, as it is a 100% online program, the student is not constrained by fixed timetables or the need to move to another physical location, but can access the contents at any time of the day, balancing their professional or personal life with their academic life.
