The STAAR Rehab conference was another great experience. I was able to take Sierra and learn more about PNF techniques and reviewed neurological rehab and progression.
“The Symposium on Therapeutic Advances in Animal Rehabilitation (STAAR) is a unique conference that provides continuing interactive, practical education for animal rehabilitation professionals.”
This conference has been a good opportunity for me as an occupational therapist to learn more about canine rehab from vets and physical therapists who are working in the field. I love the focus that OT’s could bring to canine rehab with a focus on daily activities that the dog typically does such as eating, toileting, play, transferring into/out of a car, going for walks, etc. Although dogs don’t need help with dressing- OT’s could still be helpful in the home care realm.
