What To Expect With Acupuncture
Quick & Painless
The procedure is quick and painless, you're in and out of the office in 30 minutes.
The number of procedures you will need will vary based on your specific condition, the amount of time you've had it, and several other factors.
Once you are evaluated, the doctor will analyze your presentation and give you an estimate of the number of treatments likely needed based on clinically evidence-based data.
The acupuncture process is repeated 2-5 times a week until maximum improvement is seen. Then a maintenance regimen is often prescribed to prevent recurrence. Maintenance may be as little as 1-2 times per month.
Absence Of Symptoms
Acupuncture can and often results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years.
