  • Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)

    Is a healing technology that locates areas of the animal's nervous system that has fallen out of communication, and re-establishes neuronal 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 has 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 syndromes
    • IV disc disease
    • Progressive myelopathies ("down in the rears" dogs)
    • Urinary and fecal incontinence
    • Unilateral lameness
    • Wobbler's Disease
    • Diseases of the knee
    • Esophageal disease
    • Increased of decreased GI mobility disease
    • Digestive disorders
    • Performance problems
    • Behavioral problem
    • Agility dysfunction
    • Endocrine disease
    • and many more...

    Is Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) chiropractic care?

    No! VOM exists in between veterinary medicine and chiropractic care. It has similarities to some of the chiropractic modalities and functions by restoring function by reducing "subluxations" as is done in chiropractic care. It uses a hand-held device that is used in a popular human chiropractic technique called "Activator Methods" but it is not to be confused with that technique. The differences between VOM and Chiropractic care are significant and distinct.

    VOM exists in a gray area between both professions (Veterinary and Chiropractic) and benefits from the positive aspects of both, a hybrid, and thus more effective than either by themselves.

    VOM is not animal chiropractic care and thus is not taught by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). VOM is not recognized by the AVCA (the AVCA does not recognize anything it does not teach).

    The Animal Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) does not recognize veterinary chiropractic care or the AVCA for now.

    Why is VOM so accurate?

    VOM is so 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. The pathological read is not "partially there", "kinda there", or "almost there" adding a factor of subjectivity to interpretation. VOM is a precisely objective science.

    How it 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 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. It is that simple.

    All the various types of chiropractic techniques have this motion or force into the subluxated joint in common.

    VOM delivers its force with a hand-held device. It looks a bit like a spring-loaded doorstop.

    Your VOM practitioner has extensive references covering the research investigating the principles portrayed above and can provide them upon request. These references are replete in chiropractic journals.

    Why is VOM so successful?

    Because VOM locates all the neuronal subluxations present in the animal regardless of whether clinical listings are present and reduces them and confirms their reduction. Inherent in the VOM Technology is a built-in rescheduling protocol that inserts the patient on a self-regulating readjustment interval. Again, an easy, objective science.

    How can VOM be that easy?

    Why not? Who says that a healing modality has to be complicated, difficult and expensive? Who says it should take hundreds of hours to learn and perfect?

    A technology that goes to the root of the problem, a simple technology that relies on the animal's innate ability to heal itself, one that re-establishes communication with the pet's ability to heal itself, will be easy, powerful and effective.
