Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a technique for treating certain painful conditions and other medical issues.  It produces regional anesthesia by passing long, thin needles through the skin to specific points.  It stimulates these points on the body to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve a desired effect.  It has been used on horses for back pain, lameness, and neck pain as well as a routine part of training for some of our patient athletes.

The history of equine acupuncture dates back to the years 2000-3000 BC during the Shang and Chow dynasties in China.  It has been practiced in the Far East for centuries but had received little attention by Western equine veterinary practitioners until the last decade in the 20th century.  Many reputable equine associations have supported acupuncture as a “sound” veterinary treatment, including the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).

Dr. Wade Wisner is Green Glen’s veterinary equine acupuncturist.  Treatments usually last between 20-30 minutes.  A treatment plan will be developed on a case-to-case basis.
