Dr. William Inman’s Biography

Wm. L. Inman, BS, BS, D.V.M. is currently the originator of the technology, Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM), a non-surgical approach to spinal disease and lameness. He personally has successfully treated more pets than any other practitioner in the Western United States. Since he began in 1984 he has made more than 45,000 animal adjustments, all documented.

Dr. Inman graduated Phi Beta Kappa with honors from Washington State University in 1974, 1975, and 1979, (BS, BS, and DVM). There he concentrated his study on companion animal surgery and clinical neurology. After several years owning and operating a private practice in a busySeattle area, he became disappointed with many surgical solutions to lameness and paralysis that suffered poor success rates. Out of this disappointment came the VOM Technology.

In 1996 his license was suspended for 5 years. In the same document that suspended his license, the VOM Technology was validated as a “safe, valuable and effective healing technology”.

So he discontinued clinical practice in 1996 in lieu of a full-time teaching career. In 2001 when his “time was up” he opted to forgo re-instatement which would require to relocate to another part of the country and leave his young family (daughters 2 and 4) alone.

To date he has personally instructed over 6700 doctors in the VOM, VMR. VSV and Veterinary Cold Laser Technologies. This is feat unprecedented in the private or the academic sectors and speaks well to his honesty, integrity and professionalism.

His application of a hand-held spinal accelerometer, a well-established human technology, to domestic animals opened up a huge area of here-to-fore untreatable veterinary diseases. These diseases can now be managed with the VOM™ technology, a non-invasive, non-painful and inexpensive healing modality.

VOM™ is not a technique, but an entire healing technology. Dr. Inman’s research has been based on the clinical management of cases presented in his practice in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Inman is the author of several articles, web pages and publications about veterinary chiropractic care.

In 1996 Dr. Inman’s qualifications and VOM technology were evaluated by the submissions committee of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, and his monograph:“Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation” was published in their Annual Proceedings, October 1996, where Dr. Inman formally introduced his technology to the 450 veterinarians present and to the veterinary field in general.

In November of 1996 he addressed the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) annual convention in Phoenix, NM on the effects of subluxation in training and health.

In 1997-present he has trained in excess of 6700 professionals in the US, Canada, Great Britain,Sweden, Australia and New Zealand. Practitioners who complete his VOM Modules 1-5 and pass an accreditation exam are authorized as Certified Veterinary Chiropractitioners (CVCP) by the International Association of Veterinary Chiropractitioners (IAVCP).

In 1999 Dr. Inman was featured at the Southwestern International Veterinary Symposium, sponsored by the Texas Veterinary Medical Association in San Antonio, TX and delivered“Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation: A Diagnostic Technology That Precedes Clinical Disease”to over 1500 attending veterinarians.

Dr. Inman conducts a national lecture series teaching his VOM™ technology “Veterinary Neural Integration Methods and Clinical Applications” based on his 18 years of clinical experience of related cases.

In 1997 Dr. Inman trained over 1550 practitioners in 58 seminars in the US and Canada in his presentation: VOM/Small Animal Module One.

In 1998-99 Dr. Inman will continue his successful VOM/SA Module One and because of popular demand he will offer VOM/Small Animal Two, a continuation of Module One. “VOM Module Three: Feline and Equine adjusting”, finishes out a three-part series that culminates in Certified Veterinary Chiropractitioner (CVCP).

He has been published as a feline chiropractic authority in “The Well Adjusted Cat” by Dr. Daniel Kamen in the section: “Chiropractic and Cats”.

He is an animated and enjoyable speaker about a number of eye-opening topics. He teaches an on-site short course in V.O.M.™ at private clinics and universities for both the professional and non-professional animal lovers.

In 2001 Dr. Inman developed Veterinary Myofascial Release Technique, Veterinary Somato-visceral Technique and formally integrated these and VOM into an inclusive methodology called:Veterinary Neural Integration Technique (VNIT).

In 2003 Dr. Inman developed the first workable animal cold laser technique: Veterinary Cold Laser Technique (VCLT) and has begun to deliver this method all over the world.

All the techniques Dr. Inman has developed have success rates from 91 to 93% . These methods fix the problem not just diminish the symptoms or signs. By repairing that neuronal interference they allow the body to fix itself and give a solution to the problem instead of a temporary diminution of the clinical symptoms.
