Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)

dog massageVOM is a healing technology that locates areas of the animals nervous system that has fallen out of ‘communication’ with the body, and re-establishes nerve communication and thus induces healing.

VOM is singularly the most simple, effective and safe healing modality in veterinary care to date. For the VOM practitioner it is an exquisitely objective, fast and easy to apply technology that takes a minimum amount of time to master and whose scope of application appears as yet to be fully appreciated.

What can VOM treat?

Routinely treated are conditions such as, acute and non-acute lameness, progressive lameness, Hip dysplasia like syndrome, InterVertebral (spinal)  Disc disease, progressive myleopathies, urinary and fecal incontinence, Wobblers Disease, Disease of the knee, and arthritis.

VOM exists in between veterinary medicine and chiropractic care. It has similarities to some of the chiropractic modalities and function to restoring function, by reducing subluxations as is done in human chiropractic care. It uses a hand held device that is used in a popular human chiropractic technique called Activator Method.

Why is VOM so accurate?

VOM is accurate because it finds and reduces ALL neuronal subluxations. All neuronal subluxations have a pathological reflex demonstrably associated with them.

A pathological reflex is like a knee jerk response. It is either there or it is not. It is an objective means to determine the presence and reduction of neuronal subluxation. VOM is a precisely objective science.

How VOM works

All chiropractic modalities have one thing in common, in that they all reduce the vertebral subluxation complex by providing motion or force to the fixated (“frozen”) or subluxated joint.

Spinal injury = Neuronal Subluxation Syndrome = Pathological Read

Neuronal subluxation + Motion (force) = Subluxation Reduced.

So if you put motion into a joint that is associated with a neuronal subluxation sign, a pathological read, you reduce the subluxation and the pathological read goes away.
