Acupuncture Provides Targeted Treatment
Acupuncture is a safe, effective treatment option with virtually limitless applications. Acupuncture can help slow the progression of, or even cure, problems related to your pet’s musculoskeletal, reproductive, neurological, or gastrointestinal systems. It can be used to mitigate pain; and it can hasten recovery after surgery.
Additionally, Dr. Kainer can use acupuncture in combination with other treatments (such as cold laser therapy and VOM) to target a very specific area of the body and provide your pet with the best possible outcome.
Acupuncture originated in China and has been used as a therapeutic treatment option for thousands of years. Acupuncture is performed by using specialized, hair-thin needles to open energy meridians throughout the body. Thousands of points are known, and Dr. Kainer will target specific points related to your pet’s condition to alleviate pain and increase blood flow to a particular area or part of the body. Acupuncture causes minimal or no pain and is generally well tolerated by pets.
