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.
When placed and “fired” over the spinous processes or the animal’s spine and other bones, the activator locates the part of the body that has fallen out of communication. By “firing” the activator, it reestablishes neural communication and therefore inducing healing. As this process is repeated several times it releases endorphins thereby causing the animals to relax and enjoy the procedure. In addition to passing over the spinous processes the activator is also “fired” all the way down the spine on either side. This “opens up” any blockages in the nerve bundles located on either side of the spine. This allows better communication and function of the internal organs.
On average, an improvement in the pet’s behavior is noticeable within one week after treatment. Most clients notice within a day or two of treatment that their pet is more energetic, moving better and acting more like themselves.
This can be performed by the following veterinarians at our practices:
We are offering a free initial chiropractic treatment ($75 value) for your petuntil 5/31/17.
We recommend treating all young healthy animals at least three times (once a week for three weeks) and then yearly.For animals with any muscular skeletal problems we recommend treating for minimally once a week for three weeks. Skip a week then another treatment. Skip two weeks then another treatment. Follow up treatments every 3 to 6 months as needed.
VOM was developed by Dr. William Inman, DVM in 1982. Dr. Inman is a veterinary neurologist who performed many surgeries on animals with severe spinal disease before developing the VOM technology.
Do you have any questions on what to look for when choosing a diet for your pet? What does it mean when it states that it is organic, holistic, lite, light, low fat or that it is made with chicken or beef?
