Acupuncture is an excellent additional option for support in the healing of many conditions. Acupuncture will not cure every condition, but it can work very well, when indicated, in combination with other treatments in aiding the body to heal. The technique has been used for thousands of years in veterinary practice in China. The acupuncture technique involves the insertion of very small needles into specific points on the body to stimulate and produce a healing response. Each acupuncture point represents specific actions when stimulated.
Some of the conditions in which acupuncture may be indicated include:
- Musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis, intervertebral disc disease or soft tissue injury
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Skin problems
- Liver/kidney problems
