This lecture will focus on the non-surgical approaches to treating cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) injury. Using an evidence-based medicine approach we will discuss treatment options that range from hinged functional stifle orthosis to regenerative medicine therapies. The discussion will include specific details that allow the clinician to incorporate these treatment options into their daily practice.
