Acupuncture is the use of tiny needles to stimulate a healing process and provide pain relief. Electro-acupuncture also sends electric currents to those areas to stimulate the nerve endings deep inside the tissue below acupressure points. Rather than treating specific diseases as acupuncture does, electro-acupuncture has been shown to work well for chronic pain relief. Dogs who have chronic pain or severe pain from arthritis tend to show an improved range of motion and relief of pain after electro-acupuncture treatments. Studies have shown electro-acupuncture can also be beneficial for treating paralysis in dogs.
