Acupuncture can help your pet's recovery!
There are many benefits of using acupuncture after surgery, all which aid in helping your pet heal faster, reduce pain and it may even help cut its recovery time in half.
Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture treatments before and after surgery significantly reduced pain and the use of painkillers.
Acupuncture has been proven to:
· Reduce pain and inflammation
· Promote circulation
· Release endorphins
· Boost the immune system
· Minimize drug side-effects
· Decrease stress
· Reduce scarring
For post-surgical patients at Our Family Veterinary Services all sessions include a combination of acupuncture, laser therapy and acupressure for maximum benefits. http://www.fourpawsacupuncture.com/services.html
In conjunction with acupuncture, there are also a few excellent Chinese herbal formulas, liniments and homeopathic remedies that reduce pain and inflammation while speeding up the healing process.
