To heal or not to heal? That is my question.
Our pets, not unlike ourselves, go through life acquiring minor injuries for which their bodies compensate. Eventually, these injuries show up, in some form, once the body has compensated all it can in an attempt at maintaining normal function. By this time, often-dramatic secondary changes have occurred, involving many body systems. The original injuries, combined with the secondary changes, can cause extensive loss of function. Conventional therapies are concerned with the crisis phase of the injury and often the necessary medications tend to mask the symptoms. There is an additional choice.
Choose to Heal!
Through a combination of healing modalities, a better level of life can be achieved for your pet.
Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation(VOM)
VOM is a gentle, non-invasive healing technology that locates areas of the animals’ nervous system (subluxations) that have fallen out of communication. By re-establishing neuronal communication, full body healing is induced, returning balance and proper function to the body.
Myofascial Release (MFR)
The VOM technique is often followed by MFR. This technique complements and enhances VOM by relieving the increased muscle and fascia tension caused by the subluxations. The resulting decreased muscle spasm gives the animal pain reduction and decreases the recurrence of subluxation. This accelerates the overall healing process.
Somatovisceral (SV) Diseases
VOM can be used to treat a variety of non-musculo-skeletal conditions including organ diseases. VOM is used to promote a balance between the sympathetic (fight–or-flight) and parasympathetic (organ function) components of the autonomic nervous system. These two components complete each other to alter the blood flow and nervous stimulation to all areas of the body. VOM utilizes sites on the body similar to acupuncture points as well as other sites to return balance to these two elements.
Our world is filled with infrasonic frequencies also known as inaudible sounds. Just as smog and pollution affect our environment, sound affects our health. Think of nails on a black board as opposed to a Mozart concerto.
Normal healthy cells emit frequencies in the alpha range, which is between 8-14 hertz. Our bodies are natural alpha wave generators, and alpha waves are considered to be the optimum frequencies for healing and tissue recovery. When we are affected by illness, disease, injury, trauma or stress, the cells in our bodies generate frequencies outside of the alpha range.
The purpose of the alpha wave generator is to unlock the body’s natural healing ability, safely, quickly, non-invasively. I’ve found it affective for pain relief related to inflammation or swelling affecting connective tissue and muscle spasm, simultaneously increasing circulation. You can think of the generator as a shotgun for acupuncture meridians but it can also be directly applied on a specific acupuncture meridian.
Diet, the Building Blocks
The current quality of commercial pet foods is embarrassingly poor, to the point of causing or exacerbating many ailments. This must be addressed and a higher quality of building blocks achieved. Organic, whole food diets are available to fit every owner lifestyle, and are vital but we must learn how and what to feed our pets; they are what they eat. Inadequate digestion results in many health conditions that can be prevented. Supplemental enzymes may be necessary for some pet’s digestion, as they may not be able to make adequate quantities anymore.
Dr. Gregory S. Malakoff, D.C., D.A.C.N.B., C.V.C.P.
Dr. Malakoff earned his Bachelor’s from the State University System of New York and received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 1982.
In 1995, Dr. Malakoff earned a Diplomate in Neurology, from the American Chiropractic Neurological Board (DACNB). Currently, there are approximately only 264 active certified chiropractic neurologists in the world. This neurology program is the first and only chiropractic postgraduate course of study to be awarded full accreditation with the National Commission for Certification Agencies (NCCA) a branch of the National Organization for Competency Assurance(NOCA).
In 2003, Dr. Malakoff expanded into Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation and received his certification (C.V.C.P.) in September of 2004. It was the natural conclusion to his first job in 1969 as a Veterinary Assistant. His love of animals has changed his direction in practice and now takes great joy in offering pet owners a very affective and reasonably priced health alternative to your four-legged family member.
