Acupuncture in Equine Sports Medicine

Acupuncture in Equine Sports Medicine

by Marilyn Maler, DVM, Dipl, ACVSMR, Alachua, FL

The use of acupuncture in equine sports medicine is very common today, and it is used by performance horse veterinarians to a varied spectrum of depth. Many practitioners, myself included, are fully integrative and use many modalities including traditional diagnostics and medicines as well as TCVM to approach cases. I also observed, when reconnecting with past Chi Institute students, that some practitioners have done a complete paradigm shift after their education at the Chi Institute and practice using only TVCM principles. There are also some practitioners who do not practice acupuncture on a daily basis but frequently use the Jing-Luo diagnostic scan to help localize an issue.
