Acupuncture Treatments how many is needed?
In addition to wanting to know what types of problems can be treated with Chinese Medicine, people will also want to know how many treatments or how long a period of treatment will be needed. Because Chinese Medicine is almost exclusively a method of reaction medicine and this approach differs so much from individual to individual, answering this question is also difficult. Some of the factors to be considered include – the age of the patient, overall health, and so on. Shoulder pain Cairns
As a general rule, the longer someone has had a problem, the longer it will take to treat.
Fortunately, this does not mean it takes exactly as long to treat as it took to develop the problem. Shoulder pain cairns
I tell my patients that if a problem took years to develop, it may take months to treat, one that took weeks to develop may only take days to treat, and something that just popped up may resolve in just one or two treatments.
As far as acupuncture and acupressure go, treatments are usually begun at a more frequent pace, perhaps two or three treatments per weeks, before the frequency is reduced to once a week, or once every other week. In some acute conditions, it is often useful to do a few daily treatments to get the problem under control before spreading the treatments out.
In China acupuncture is done daily , perhaps for 10 days in a row. This was called a ‘series’ of treatments. shoulder pain cairns
I like to tell those under my care that every treatment process will have a beginning, a middle, and an ending phase. The beginning phase consists of making something positive happen for them: the middle where you build on that progress and take the improvement and take the improvement as far as possible. The last phase is making the improvement last as long as possible. Although every person is different and can respond differently to treatment, those who get off to a faster start and show more improvement sooner in the first phase will almost always end up needing fewer treatments overall than those who take longer before they first see any improvement. Because of this, I often tell people that I will be able to advise them how many treatments will end up being needed only after I see how well they respond in the first phase. Most people should show some progress during this time, and then, depending on the degree of progress, I will be able to tell them how many more treatments are likely to be necessary in total. shoulder pain cairns
Some people will have significant improvement within the first one or two treatments and may only require a few more treatments after that, especially if their problem is a more recent one. Complex or chronic problems may only begin to respond after five to six treaments. shoulder pain cairns
However many treatments it take before symptoms begin to improve, once improvement begins and one moves into the second phase of treatment, this improvement should build over time. This may not happen with each and every treatment, but progress should be steady overall. This phase is like watching a graph chart of the stock market: there may be a dip one day, but overall you will see steady improvement. shoulder pain cairns
