The Veterinary Chiropractitioner will do a diagnostic
pass that entails her running the device down the pet's spine, searching
for pathological reads indicative of subluxations. The subluxations
found are recorded.
If significant subluxations are found and they correspond
to the clinical disease presented, then a course of VOM treatment is
An estimate may be generated and other procedures may be
recommended and quoted, (and performed by your veterinarian) such as blood work, x-ray, and other diagnostic
A second VOM pass is made (therapeutic pass) and the
changes to the reading pattern is noted. Your pet may be already
showing signs of improvement.
A third VOM pass is usually made and that data
evaluated. Most if not all the reads may be reduced at this point.
Your pet may then be sent home or may be observed
overnight by the clinician depending upon the nature of the case.
An appointment to return for readjustment will be made
upon release and post-adjustment instructions are given as to activity and
A series of three to five readjustments may be needed to
reach a point where no reads are found in which case the subluxation
pattern is cleared.
Maintenance checks may be recommended every four to six
months to watch for reoccurrence.
