Acupuncture therapy is used to help alleviate pain and improve the joints range of motion.
Acupuncture is defined as the treatment of conditions or symptoms by the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body in order to produce a response. The specific placement of the needles enhances blood circulation and stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This makes it a great therapy option for pets who experience arthritis, joint inflammation, back pain, or other spinal cord conditions.
Each acupuncture point has specific actions when stimulated. Which acupuncture points are stimulated, the depth of needle insertion, the type of stimulation applied to the needles, and the duration of each treatment session depends on the patient’s tolerance and the condition being treated.
