Acupuncture Awareness Week 2016

It’s that time of year again …

BAcC AWW

ACUPUNCTURE AWARENESS WEEK
7th – 13th March 2016

is once again upon us  …  and there’s a Special  AAW 10% Discount  available when booking  –  just quote  AAW16  !!!

This year’s emphasis is on Sport and Musculoskeletal Injuries  ..   just in time for the Rio Olympics, but even more appropriate for us here at  The Lightworks Clinic 

Our specialty is in helping to resolve Sports and Tissue Injuries using the properties of Low Level Laser to deliver non-invasive, drug-free treatment for all types of injury  – whether open wound, soft tissue, muscular, tendon, ligament or fracture, spinal injuries and paralysis.

Low Level Laser Therapy is a first line treatment modality –  it is recommended, gentle and safe to be given immediately after injury in order to help resolve inflammation and start the healing process  –  unlike some other modes of treatment that suggest waiting until the inflammatory phase has passed.

Laser Acupuncture  is based on the same Principles and Laws as Traditional Acupuncture, but using Laser’s aseptic, non-invasive, painless properties instead of needles.   Literally  … ‘All the Wisdom of Traditional Acupuncture,  without the Needles’  

Used in conjunction, these two modes of Laser Therapy have proved to be highly effective in resolving injuries and speeding the whole healing process, at the same time as strengthening the tissue involved  –  in The Lightworks Clinic this is backed by 25 years of experience in the field.

Remember  …  the earlier the treatment,  the better the results !!

Journal of Equine Veterinary Science

Journal of Equine Veterinary  Science

…. has finally accepted the research paper for publication  !!!

Use of Thermography for Functional Evaluation of Stallion Scrotum and Testes

J L Lloyd-Jones, Lic Ac,   R C Purohit DVM PhD, DACT,               M Boyle MA VetMB MRCVS,   C Shepherd BVSc MRCVS

This paper explores the use of thermography to identify anJEVS Publicationd evaluate the normal optimum temperature range of the SST (scrotal surface temperature).

It found that any subtle variation to this ‘norm’ would appear to impact on the Motility Score given to subsequently collected semen.

Motility Scores are an important means to evaluate a semen collection and are used to determine it’s probable long term viability, particularly if the semen is to be frozen.

The research concluded Thermography could provide an ideal, non-invasive means to identify subtle changes in the ‘optimum temperature range’ and, if these anomalies persist,  provide an early indication that further veterinary investigation may be appropriate.
