Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)


dog chiropracticVeterinary Orthopedic Manipulation

Daily exercise and play sessions form a vital part of our pets’ everyday lives. However, while living an active lifestyle may be enjoyable, it requires top spinal health and flexibility. More and more veterinarians are now recommending orthopedic manipulation to treat injuries, restore mobility and relieve pain in animals, particularly in aging pets, working dogs, or those involved in intense obedience and agility training. But the benefits of veterinary orthopedic manipulation (VOM) don't end there; this form of manipulation therapy is also becoming increasingly popular in treating a surprising number of other health problems, from separation anxiety to incontinence.

It reduces the subluxations present in the joints of your pet. It cannot create a subluxation in your pet. It can only activate the neuronal switches that are turned off. It cannot flip a switch off. It provides very accurate and precise motion to specific areas of the pet’s spine and if a subluxation is present it can detect and reduce it quickly without pain or injury. It can confirm that the neuronal subluxation is reduced even if it is not associated with an anatomical listing.

Can the device and VOM harm my pet?

VOM involves undergoing spinal manipulation or manual therapy to move misplaced vertebrae in the spine (also known as vertebral subluxations) back into their normal position to release pressure on the surrounding nerve tissue. This, in turn, relieves pain and enables the body to naturally heal itself.

Veterinary orthopedic manipulation is most commonly administered as an additional treatment option for animals suffering from spinal problems or biomechanical-related musculoskeletal disorders. Injuries and disorders like these can cause your pet’s health to deteriorate quickly, and can severely affect movement, posture, and flexibility, and even impact other muscles and joints in the body.

What is VOM treatment used for?

  • Chronic musculoskeletal problems
  • Acute tension or stiffness
  • Separation anxiety Incontinence
  • Diagnosed pathologies such as hip dysplasia and CCL rupture
  • VOM can also be used to enhance performance, prevent illness and maintain fitness, as well as treat animals suffering from injuries or lameness.
