Orthomanual veterinary medicine
Dorit C. Aharon, DVM, developed her orthomanual therapy method for animals with orthopaedic and neurological problems involving the spine, joints and/or musculoskeletal system. The method, also called orthomanipulation, is non-invasive and animal-friendly. The main diagnostic tools are inspection and palpation, focused on the symmetry of the spine and positions of the joints and components of the skeleton.
Pets with vertebral and joint misalignment can experience pain, contracture, and functional limitations. Dr Aharon identifies and adjusts misalignments, to allow the spine and joints to regain a more optimal anatomical position. That allows the nervous system to recover and promotes relaxation of muscular spasms. This method has been proven effective in many animals, over more than 20 years of research and experience.
The Aharon Method has been demonstrated effective for treating pets with a spectrum of neurological and orthopaedic complaints as well as for preventive purposes, for example in service and working animals, puppies and senior pets.
