As a general rule, acute conditions require fewer treatments than chronic conditions.
Some patients respond favorably after only one or two treatments, others show little or no improvement until their eight or ninth visit. And sometimes, despite the practitionerĺs best effort and skill, the patient does not respond to treatment.
Many patients who have been helped by acupuncture retain their improvement for months or even years after treatment. In cases where the symptoms return, people may be helped again with just a few more sessions.
Chronic conditions, especially those involving pain, may require a regular course of acupuncture as part of an overall pain management strategy.
