Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (Chiropractic)
Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) is an adjusting technology that uses an activator to affect the adjustment. The Activator is an instrument that applies targeted energy through the spinal vertebrae into the spinal cord. It is particularly effective in the treatment of spinal cord inflammation due to Intervetebral disc disease.
The technology works by correcting the nerve disruption, known as a Subluxation, in the spinal cord. When the activator is applied to the area where the subluxation is located the disruption is corrected or reduced back to the normal state. The location of the subluxation is seen when the animal responds with an involuntary “read”. Animals suffering from spinal cord inflammation may exhibit signs of extreme weakness or paralysis due to the inflammation. Many times the area where the problem is occurring cannot be seen on radiographs but the animal can still be treated with this technology.
Dogs, cats and horses are routinely treated and respond very well to this technology. The Adjustments are well tolerated and there is no chance that the animal will be harmed due to the low amount of movement of the bone that occurs during the adjustment.
Most animals tolerate Acupuncture very well. It is a healing technique that involves inserting needles into specific areas of the body, called Acupuncture points, to cause a healing response. We use Acupuncture for various diseases and conditions. Many times the acupuncture points are stimulated with a small amount of an injectable solution to get a more enhanced effect.
Frequency Specific Low Level Laser Therapy
How does it work? The Low Level Laser Therapy works by increasing the energy level in the cells of the tissue that is being treated. By increasing the energy level the tissue can repair and heal faster or be induced to heal if no healing is occurring.
The laser we use is unique in that it uses light that is pulsed into the body at the frequency of the tissue we are treating. We do this by programming the laser at the time of treatment specifically for the tissue frequency we are treating.
Diseases that we routinely employ the Laser therapy for is Allergies, Wounds, Orthopedic injuries, etc. We use it in combination with Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (see above) in the treatment of Spinal cord inflammation due to Intervetebral Disc disease (slipped disc). Animals that are weak or in some cases paralyzed due to spinal cord inflammation have been treated successfully with these technologies.
Laser Therapy Provides Relief
- Allows your pet to heal faster after surgery or any traumatic injury.
- Eases pain and improves mobility without the use of pharmaceuticals and surgery.
- Provides geriatric pets relief of aches and pains, and allows for more freedom and improved quality of life.
- Relieves pain and discomfort from everyday disorders such as lick granulomas and chronic ear infections.
