Can Acupuncture Treat Serious Dog Agility Injuries?

Can Acupuncture Treat Serious Dog Agility Injuries? 

Serious injuries such as fractures, dislocations, torn tendons, and serious internal injuries should be first treated by a veterinarian. 

Recovery from many of these injuries, however, can be augmented by acupuncture, herbs and nutrition. 

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine can also help reduce the pain and symptoms of post-operative surgery, arthritis, neurological issues, hip and elbow dysplasia, knee and shoulder injuries and pain. 

Most dog patients have improved performance in their agility after a series of acupuncture sessions. 

Prevention of Sports & Agility Injuries 

Chinese medicine has many tools to help prevent injuries and the recurrence of injuries. Through acupuncture, nutrition, herbal support, and proper preparation and training, injuries can be minimized or avoided. Oriental medicine is also helpful in treating old injuries that sideline your dog’s play in later years. Regular treatment helps your dog’s body stay in balance. A body in balance is less susceptible to injury and illness. 

Oriental medicine approaches health in a holistic manner. In the Chinese medical framework, the body is seen as an energetic collection of functions, in contrast to the Western view of the body as a mechanical collection of parts.
