What is Veterinary Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the technique of inserting needles in specific points around the body that have positive effects on the nervous system. Veterinary acupuncture works just like the acupuncture techniques used in human medicine, and is a safe treatment that works with traditional veterinary medicine to help treat many medical conditions.
The primary use of acupuncture is during rehabilitation and pain management. The goal of veterinary acupuncture is to correct imbalances by enhancing the circulation of blood throughout the body and stimulating the nervous system. Veterinary acupuncture also releases pain relieving hormones such as serotonin that greatly reduces pain in your pet.
What Conditions Does Acupuncture Treat?
Veterinary acupuncture can help treat many health conditions your pet may be experiencing including chronic and acute conditions. Dogs and cats with arthritis, disc disease, and paralysis can greatly benefit from acupuncture treatments. It is also helpful after surgical procedures to give pets relief from pain and discomfort, and encourages a speedy recovery.
