Churchville Veterinary Hospital, PC, is proud to announce that Dr. Jacqueline Walker is now certified in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture. Dr. Walker received her acupuncture training through CuraCore Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians in Colorado in 2017. Acupuncture can be used as a sole therapy or in conjunction with existing Western treatments. It is a non-invasive, non-painful therapy that can improve your pet’s quality of life and is used to treat a variety of conditions such as neurologic diseases like intervertebral disc disease; muscular injury; pain and inflammation associated with arthritis hip dysplasia, or degenerative joint disease, seizure disorders; asthma; kidney disease; allergies; side effects of cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation; to improve healing associated with recent surgery; and chronic diseases that medical therapy is not improving your pet’s condition or where they are having adverse effects to their medications.
Acupuncture is a very safe treatment when performed by a certified veterinary acupuncturist. We combine all of our acupuncture appointments with laser therapy. Laser therapy works through a concept called photobiomodulation; it uses light energy to change cells from an inflammatory state (caused by arthritis, etc.) to a healthy state; this has an immediate effect by decreasing pain. It increases blood flow to the site you are lasering which decreases healing time.
If you would like to learn more about veterinary acupuncture or laser therapy or want to know if this therapy can help your pet, please call to speak to a staff member about setting up an appointment at 585-293-2270. Dr. Walker would also be more than happy to speak with you about acupuncture as well.
