These treatments are available both at the surgery and at home by Fiona Elliot and Nancy Homewood who are fully trained and members of the ABVA. Fiona and Nancy have had a string of measurable successes in racehorses, eventers, hacks, dressage and retired horses. Acupuncture alleviates soft tissue pain (either primary damage to muscles or secondary strain due to pain in the skeleton). It can be used alongside or instead of physiotherapy. Conditions that can be treated include sore backs (either direct muscle damage or and secondary pain due to kissing spines or hind limb arthritis), muscle tears or strains, even generalised conditions that lead to stiff muscles such as laminitis. If you would like to find out more please phone Fiona or Nancy at the practice on 01608 730085.
