What is Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)? VOM is a healing technique designed to repair and re-establish a healthy nervous system for animals. It uses a hand held device called an “activator” used by many human chiropractors on their patients. The activator used for VOM restores the body’s functions by reducing “subluxations” as in typical chiropractic care. Subluxations are misalignments of the bones. When this is present there is often a corresponding impingement of the nerves that situated in that area.
