Safe, Targeted Treatment for Spinal Misalignment

Veterinary orthopedic manipulation (VOM) is a safe, effective healing technique that can correct misalignments of the vertebrae. VOM can provide relief for pets suffering from arthritis, hip dysplasia, lameness, gastrointestinal disease, back problems, and other health issues by easing pain, improving flexibility and mobility, and enhancing organ function.

To perform VOM, Dr. Kainer uses a hand-held instrument to deliver a precise motion to a specific area of an animal’s spine. The treatment is fast and will not cause any pain or injury to your pet.

Dr. Kainer often uses VOM in conjunction with laser therapy and acupuncture. These noninvasive therapies can yield impressive results, especially when done regularly. In many instances, VOM can assimilate the alignment of the spine, while the cold laser and acupuncture can be used to pinpoint areas of inflammation in the surrounding soft tissues.

Conditions that benefit from Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation include:

  • Lameness (acute and chronic)
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Disc disease
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Incontinence
  • Wobbler syndrome
  • Digestive disorders
  • Knee problems
  • Agility dysfunction
  • And more

Some pets experience a marked improvement after just one treatment. Please call us if you have any questions regarding VOM or to find out if VOM may be right for your pet.
