Orthomanipulation* was developed specifically for the treatment of vertebral and joint misalignment.
The method of treatment is to correct the misalignment, thereby allowing the spine to adjust to a normal position and the nervous system to recover itself.
From 2000-2001 D.C. Aharon was trained by a doctor of humans and applied the human method to companion animals and uses it successfully since then.
* Orthomanipulation means 'working with the hands in the right way'.
Reasons for a consultation include:
my dog / cat is stiff or has difficulty standing up
my dog / cat can’t go up the stairs or jump into the car
he / she has been limping for a while (rest and medicine are insufficient)
he / she is partially paralysed, stumbles over his / her fore- or hind limbs
he / she has had a discopathy (Hernia Nucleus Pulposes)
also for certain behavioural abnormalities, such as restlessness or fearfulness
Rehabilitation and fitness
Dogs can undergo a rehabilitation, exercise- and fitness training.
Reasons for rehabilitation:
injuries to muscles and tendons
postoperative patients (after surgeries on knee, shoulder or hip) – animals with hernia and paralysis (post-traumatic or postoperative) - patients with lumbosacral instability and lower back pain
arthrosis patients (dogs that have difficulty getting up, especially after resting) – hyper mobility with animals that are still growing (the dog seems to ‘fall apart’)

Rocky, the Dachshund who was paralysed
My hernia was serious, but not hopeless. As it appeared later, on a scale of 1 till 5, I was situated on 4 (almost 5). Dr. Aharon readjusted my vertebral notches, positioning them back in the right place. After that, I was ordered to have a long and complete rest, which I did without much protest. My owners had to catheterise me three times per day, and after eight days.… Read more
Michel and Francoise
On October 4, 2009, one day after we got Tommy (aged 8) back from the animal hotel, we saw for the first time that he was lifting his left foreleg every once in a while, as he was sitting down. In the beginning we thought the problem will get solved by itself, but after a week we saw no improvement. As a matter of fact, it got worse..… Read more
