Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body, known as acupuncture points, to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. Acupuncture has anti-inflammatory effects, which can help reduce swelling and inflammation associated with acute injuries or chronic conditions like arthritis.

Acupuncture can also be used to enhance movement and function in pets with mobility issues or neurological impairments. By stimulating nerve function and muscle activity, acupuncture helps restore balance, coordination, and strength, enabling pets to move more comfortably and effectively.

Performed by our trained veterinarian, acupuncture sessions are tailored to each individual pet's needs and may be combined with other rehabilitation modalities such as hydrotherapy, therapeutic exercises, and massage therapy for comprehensive care.

Acupuncture is utilized to manage:

  • Pain and inflammation
  • Degenerative joint disease (arthritis)
  • Orthopedic and neurologic disorders
  • Trauma and injury
  • Post-operative healing
  • Muscle tension or spasms
  • Chronic muscle and tendon strains
