Acupuncture is a complementary treatment which can be used alongside conventional medical and surgical therapy to prevent and treat disease.

The treatment involves inserting fine, sterile, stainless steel needles into specific points of the body to stimulate tiny nerve endings that carry impulses to the spinal cord and brain. This prompts responses within the nervous and endocrine systems. The effect of an individual needle is determined by where it is placed and which nerves are stimulated - hence the need for a thorough knowledge of veterinary anatomy and physiology.

In equine practice acupuncture is commonly used for the relief of musculoskeletal pain and is especially beneficial for treating any type of muscle soreness, particularly of the neck, shoulders, back and hindquarters..
