Acupuncture is a 3000-year-old Chinese practice utilizing hair-thin needles to stimulate the body’s nerve centers, improving blood circulation and releasing pain-relieving hormones. This virtually painless process relaxes muscle tissue and oxygenates the surrounding area, allowing the body to heal more rapidly. Acupuncture is one of the safest veterinary treatments available, and Hilton Veterinary Hospital acupuncture specialists are licensed.
Many disorders can be treated with acupuncture including:
- Neurologic and soft tissue pain
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Musculoskeletal systemic problems
- Skin conditions
- Respiratory distress
Animal acupuncture is one of the safest veterinary treatments available. It requires no pharmaceutical assistance, removing the possibility of overdose and adverse reaction and can be used in conjunction with most other traditional and alternative treatments.
