Dr. Haussler contributes to CERP training in Tennessee


Dr. Haussler frequently travels around the globe to teach and collaborate with colleagues.

In early July, he spent two days contributing to a hands-on training session for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and physical therapists, as part of the Certified Equine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CERP) course. Participants hailed from the US, Canada, Ecuador, and the Hong Kong Jockey Club. The training took place at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine. https://www.utvetrehab.com/equine-rehab-cerp/

During one full day, Dr. Haussler lectured on equine spinal anatomy and taught hands-on dissection. The dissections were from nose to tail with a focus on functional anatomy and clinical relevance to locomotion and rehabilitation.

The second day, he lectured and provided a demonstration on spinal evaluation techniques. The focus of the hands-on practical session was on observation, soft tissue palpation, identifying bony landmarks, and joint mobilization techniques from head to tail.
