Acupuncture can be used alone or in combination with other treatments to control a wide variety of disorders. It is particularly useful for conditions of the musculoskeletal system such as arthritis, lameness, spinal disease and muscular pain. It can also be used to treat diseases of the nervous, gastrointestinal, cardiac, respiratory, reproductive, urinary and immune systems as well as skin conditions.
Acupuncture is very safe and does not have the side effects sometimes seen with drug therapy.
