What does Acupuncture do?

  • Pain management is one of the most common uses for acupuncture, often in conjunction with a more traditional treatment plan. Strong medical treatments like chemo, which can cause discomfort, are often paired with acupuncture to help make a pet more comfortable and able to fight the illness.

  • Musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, or nerve injuries can respond to acupuncture. It is often employed during rehabilitation after an injury. Carefully monitoring a healing pet is important; without the feeling of pain, a dog can re-injure him or herself with over-activity

  • Skin problems like allergic dermatitis, granulomas, or hot spots may respond well to acupuncture treatment because increased circulation can improve healing, while pain reduction will reduce a dog’s overgrooming or itching responses.

  • Gastrointestinal problems like nausea and diarrhea can be aided by the increased blood flow from acupuncture. It may also help normalize digestive activity by stimulating digestive secretions.

  • Respiratory problems like asthma and allergies can benefit from the immune-calming, anti-inflammatory capabilities of acupuncture. 

So, what does Laser Therapy do?

  • Decrease inflammation – activates lymphatic system to decrease swelling

  • Analgesic – affects nerve cells which block pain sensation to the brain

  • Speeds tissue repair and cell growth – penetrates into tissues to accelerate cell repair and growth,tendons and ligaments are repaired faster

  • Improved vascular activity – increases formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, speeds healing, closes wounds faster and reduces scarring

  • Stimulates acupuncture points – provides non-invasive treatment to stimulate musculoskeletal pain relief

  • Improved nerve function – speeds up process of nerve cell reconnection and increases optimal muscle action
