VMR – Veterinary Myofascial Release
VMR was developed to enhance the healing benefits of the VOM Treatment Technology. Specifically the skeletal muscle tension associated with subluxation was being addressed.
Myofascia comes from the word myo, Greek for muscle, and fasci, the connective tissue that surrounds and attaches the muscle.
One of the goals of VOM subluxation reduction is to return the muscle to its original tone. VMR can easily accomplish this effect without any trauma to the pet.
It was found that there were lines of correction in the domestic animals that, if released with this technique, would allow the muscle and tendon fixations associated with subluxations to relax.
The release achieved with this technique is therapeutic on many levels:
- Primary reduction of subluxations
- Return muscles to normal tonus and function
- Enhance healing and recovery during VOM Therapy
- Strengthen and rehabilitate atrophied muscles
- Re-establish range of motion and posture
- Improve strength and performance
The Vetrostim™ adjusting device is used exclusively in Veterinary Myofascial Release Technique. It is an electrically powered adjusting tool with a range from zero to 60 lb of thrust. It is microadjustable and has several treatment heads for various treatment techniques. The device is non-traumatic to the patient and easy to use. It is essentially silent. That is a bonus to the VOM practitioner who occasionally gets a patient that is sensitive to the sound the VOM device makes.
When physical therapy is used to rehabilitate the muscles and tendons, the process can be uncomfortable and painful as it can sometimes be in the human. An animal does not understand why its limbs are being forced through painful ranges of motion, generally sees the whole process as unpleasant and therefore is uncooperative.
VMR contacts lines of correction in the domestic animal that releases these tensions and does it in seconds. There is no pain or discomfort to the patient.
To release these areas, the practitioner has to treat the patient with several rapid-fire pulses, directed to specific sites. These pulses have to be fast enough and with enough force human hands would could not achieve. The pulses have to be as rapid as 10-15 per second. That is why VMR requires a special device.
Adapted from human application in this field, the Vetrostim does myofascial release for the extended range in the veterinary field.
