Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. It involves inserting very thin needles through the skin in particular parts around the body. It is particularly useful in animals for the treatment of pain. We use it mostly, in this practice , for the treatment of discomfort in animals relating to back, neck or hip pain. If you are interested for your pet please talk to Danny Callery, who is the vet trained for this treatment.
The K-Laser service is nurse-led and used is successfully as an adjunct therapy for arthritis, pain-control and to aid wound-healing. In some instances it allows medication to be reduced or stopped completely.
K-Laser offer the most advanced Class IV Therapy Laser Platform in the world. All K-Laser models utilise the most advanced technology in a compact and portable, yet very powerful platform. During each painless treatment, laser energy is absorbed in water, increasing local circulation and thereby drawing oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
