Seminar (Friday 11.8.2017) description:
Sports related injuries occur in working and sporting dogs, but also arise from everyday activities and weekend fun. This course is designed to help you learn more about veterinary sports medicine and rehabilitation, and become more proficient in your palpations, diagnostics, and treatments.

Regardless of the treatment plan being utilized, the ability to accurately diagnosis the injury, target the injured tissue or joint for injection, and objective measure outcomes is critical. Therefore, sports medicine evaluations, musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound, intra-articular injections, and regenerative medicine techniques will be covered that encompasses initial examination through extensive physical rehabilitation.

Workshop description (Saturday 12.8. OR Sunday 13.8.):
This one day course will provide a review of knowledge learned in the seminar, as well as hands-on laboratory experience to guide participants in learning diagnosis and treatment options for challenging forelimb and hind limb conditions, musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound, and regenerative medicine. Lectures will provide participants with the basic knowledge of these topics followed by live demonstrations and active group participation. Palpitation and assessment of forelimb and hind limb conditions will be discussed and practiced on live dogs. An introduction to musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound for diagnosing soft tissue sports-related injuries will be included. Techniques and anatomical landmarks (including iliopsoas, stifle, shoulder, and carpal/tarsal areas) will be demonstrated and practiced on cadavers. Attendees will learn proper collection techniques for platelet rich plasma and bone marrow aspiration in a clinical setting. Processing techniques will be demonstrated and attendees will practice finding anatomical landmarks and applicable injection sites on cadavers.

Conditions including supraspinatus tendinopathy, medial shoulder syndrome, traumatic fragmented medial coronoid process (jump down syndrome) will be discussed. Orthopedic examination findings including passive and dynamic testing, gait analysis, and advanced diagnostic techniques will be described in the lecture. Treatment options including rehabilitation therapy, surgical treatments and regenerative medicine therapies will be discussed. Where appropriate, orthopedic devices will be discussed and demonstrated. Return to function, retraining, and prevention will also be included. 

“Hind limb Lameness, Where Do We Start?” – Dr. Sherman Canapp

This lecture includes an in-depth overview of challenging hind limb conditions.  Conditions including iliopsoas strains, cranial cruciate ligament insufficiency, meniscal injuries will be discussed. Orthopedic examination findings including passive and dynamic testing, gait analysis and advanced diagnostic techniques will be described in the lecture. Treatment options including rehabilitation therapy, surgical treatments and regenerative medicine therapies will be discussed. Where appropriate, orthopedic devices will be discussed and demonstrated. Return to function, retraining, and prevention will also be included. 

“Musculoskeletal Diagnostic Ultrasound for Sports Related Injuries” –Dr. Debra Canapp

This talk introduces concepts, techniques, and relevant normal anatomy and scanning tips for clinically relevant sport related injuries. This will offer special scanning techniques producing the best quality imaging of targeted areas.  Applications, equipment, scanning principles, tendon, ligament, and muscle general traits, trauma presentation and healing assessment will be discussed.

“Musculoskeletal Ultrasound as a Guide for Canine Rehabilitation” –Dr. Debra Canapp

This talk covers introduction to concepts and techniques for diagnosing thru to monitoring soft tissue sports-related injuries during the rehabilitation process.  It will provide knowledge on how to utilize ultrasound in clinically relevant musculoskeletal regions. Case based presentation will take the attendee through how to modify their rehabilitation program depending on the stage of healing of the injury based on diagnostic ultrasound assessment.

“How to Incorporate Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Into Your Practice” – Dr. Sherman Canapp

This lecture includes an in-depth overview of the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy for the treatment of various orthopedic conditions in dogs. A detailed description of PRP including a breakdown of the components, mechanism of action, and biological activities will be discussed. The optimal PRP components (platelet concentrations, monocytes, lymphocytes, red blood cells, and neutrophils) will be covered. All commercially available canine PRP systems will be discussed in-depth and results of the multi-center prospective study comparing systems head-to-head will be presented. PRP collection, processing, and injection techniques will be described. Indications for use including osteoarthritis, tendon, and ligament injuries will be discussed. PRP treatment protocols will be shared and post-injection rehab programs will be described for the various conditions and treatments.

“How to Incorporate Stem Cell Therapy Into Your Practice” – Dr. Sherman Canapp

This lecture includes an in-depth overview of the use of stem cell therapy for the treatment of various orthopedic conditions in dogs. A detailed description of stem cell therapy technologies including adipose derived stromal vascular fraction (SVF), adipose derived cultured progenitor cells (ADPC), bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), cultured bone marrow derived stem cells, and allogeneic cells will be discussed. Commercially available patient-side canine stem cell systems and mail-out stem cell companies will be discussed along with pros and cons of each technology addressed. Adipose and bone marrow collection, processing, and injection techniques will be described. Indications for use including osteoarthritis, tendon, and ligament injuries will be discussed. Stem cell treatment protocols will be shared and post-injection rehabilitation programs will be described for the various conditions and treatments.
