If surgery is not your go to option, rehabilitation techniques can produce great results, turning grade 3s medial patella luxations into grade 1s and even eliminating that annoying skipping gait.
Skills and knowledge obtained from basic Veterinary Acupuncture training is often not enough to treat many musculoskeletal conditions observed daily in general practice. This has led many veterinary acupuncturists on a search for additional techniques, both traditional and modern, to complement and enhance the results of acupuncture treatment alone. Dr Kim Lim will present some simple useful guides to selection and application of appropriate acupuncture and complementary rehabilitation techniques for common conditions.
Dr Kim Lim graduated in Veterinary Science with honours from the University of Melbourne in 1990. She became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist in 1992 and received her Master of Animal Chiropractic from RMIT in 2003. She is also a certified canine rehabilitation therapist (CCRT). Since 1996 she has worked solely in integrative, complementary medicine using rehabilitation, chiropractic, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, bach flowers and homotoxicology.
Kim has been a past president of the Geelong Branch of the Australian Veterinary Association and the Australian Veterinary Acupuncture Group (AVAG). She has also been a lecturer in both the Animal Chiropractic and the Veterinary Acupuncture courses
