Orthopedic Manipulation

In 2011, Dr. Kirby began practicing Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) and added this form of alternative therapy for our patients.

VOM is a therapy that locates areas of the pet’s nervous system that have fallen out of communication, and re-establishes neuronal communication thus induces healing.

VOM is has some similarities to chiropractic care, in that it uses a hand held device that is used in popular human chiropractic technique.  Like chiropractic care, VOM provides the exact amount of force to the sub-luxated joint needed to reduce the sub-luxation. Unlike chiropractic care, VOM does this without having to induce a lot of motion, such as twisting and torsion.

VOM will help with following conditions:

  • Acute and Non-Acute Lameness
  • Progressive Lameness
  • Hip Dysplasia like syndromes
  • IV Disc Disease
  • Progressive Myelopathies
  • Wobbler’s Disease
  • Disease of the Knee
  • Esophageal Disease
  • Increase or Decrease GI Mobility Disease
  • Digestive Disorders

Results can be seen anywhere between instantly to a week.  If you are interested in having your pet receive VOM  please contact us for an appointment.
