These integrative therapies can be applied to any pet of any age, to treat a large number of conditions or to keep the health status. They don't have secondary effects and therefore they are a great option when the result of their conventional treatment is disappointing or the use of drugs are contraindicated.
Acupuncture is often sought as a pain relief for muscle or joints problems, but it can also be used for many other problems, such as:
Musculoskeletal problems such as: back pain (spondylitis/spondylosis), disc disease, cruciate ligaments, tendonitis, arthritis, joint inflammation, hip dysplasia, muscular or ligament damage.
Neurological problems: paralysis or paresis, wobbler syndrome, epilepsy.
Muscle loss: very evident after a long period of rest or after immobilisation of any limb.
Paralysis or paresis: nothing is more heart-breaking than a paralyzed pet, but don’t give up hope, because acupuncture and especially EA can help restore nerve and muscle function. It is particularly effective in acute cases, where EA might be repeated daily to exert strong stimulation to the nervous system until the condition improves (usually matter of days) and then the frequency of the treatment will be at wider intervals.
