How Can Acupuncture Help My Pet?
During a medical acupuncture treatment, Dr. Chambers inserts small, sterilized needles into pressure points on your pet. This causes changes to soft tissue and the nervous system.
Acupuncture can offer relief for a variety of conditions such as:
- Acute, chronic pain
- Musculoskeletal issues like joint pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis
- Digestive problems like inflammation and motility issues
- Neurological problems like peripheral neuropathy, intervertebral disk disease, spinal cord injury, and nerve-based pain.
Acupuncture began as an ancient Chinese practice, but has since been adapted to stay up-to-date with current medical advances. As scientists continue to research acupuncture, they find more evidence that demonstrates its benefits.
