We are pleased to announce that we have added Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy as a service to our clinic. Dr. Bobbie Jo Martin, DVM,CVSMT, our in-clinic certified Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapist, is now accepting appointments.
WHAT IS VETERINARY SPINAL MANIPULATIVE THERAPY (VSMT)?
VSMT is a manual, non-invasive method for detecting and treating conditions that impact the motion of the spinal vertebrae and extremities in animals. It solves movement conditions in the same way that Chiropractic helps their humans.
HOW DOES VSMT WORK?
Our certified therapist completes a thorough evaluation of the patient to identify hypomobilities. Where these areas are found, the therapist uses manual procedures to mobilize, adjust, stimulate, or otherwise influence the spinal and paraspinal tissues with the aim of influencing the patient’s health.
WHY CHOOSE VSMT FOR YOUR ANIMALS?
The goal of VSMT is to improve motion to areas of the body where reduced motion is found. VSMT is beneficial for the improvement of your healthy animal’s performance. Or, it can complement traditional medicine in providing a holistic therapy for older patients that are slowing down.
