Animal Chiropractic Diagnosis
Differential Diagnosis of Large and Small Animal Neuromusculoskeletal Conditions:4 Hours.
These lectures emphasize an integrated diagnosis of the entire patient using diagnostic resources of signalment, history and consultation, posture analysis, static palpation (osseous, muscle, temperature, coat changes, etc.) motion palpation and gait analysis. Emphasis is placed on how these diagnoses relate and integrate into the primary health care of the animal.
Motion Palpation Laboratory: 8 Hours.
These Laboratories assist the student in developing their "feel" for the normal versus abnormal movement in motion units. Motion Palpation is carried out on small and large animals as well as each other.
Diagnostic Imaging: 4 Hours.
Plain film radiography, digital radiography, myelography, fluoroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging are discussed and evaluated for normal and abnormal findings.
Neurological examination: 2 Hours.
This lecture explores the traditional equine and canine neurological examination including live and video demonstration.
