Abstract

Students interested in learning more about complementary modalities of treatment in veterinary medicine were provided with ample opportunity at SAVMA Symposium 2001. Lectures and wetlabs were presented that introduced audiences and participants to some basic techniques and theories in three rapidly emerging areas: chiropractic therapy, massage and rehabilitation therapy, and acupuncture. Dr. Pedro Rivera of the Healing Oasis Wellness Center provided instruction about chiropractic and massage therapy. He explained that the main purpose of these modalities is to optimize health and allow for quicker healing times from injury or surgery, and that they should not in any way replace conventional therapy.
