Q. How many treatments will I need?


A. It takes 3 treatment to know if you will respond to acupuncture. That means if you don’t notice any improvement within 3 treatments than I probably can’t help you (there are a few exceptions to this rule-mainly heel spurs and plantar fasciitis). During these first 3 treatments, we are looking for a reduction in the frequency or intensity of pain. Sometimes, an ability to engage in activities that weren’t possible before or a reduction in the use of pain medication can be the sign of improvement. The vast majority of patients will notice some improvement within 3 treatments, which means it is worthwhile to continue acupuncture until the problem is resolved, usually 6-10 treatments total.
