Many patients feel significant improvement after only one or two treatments. However, there are several factors which may influence the number of required treatments such as your age, health, lifestyle and occupation. Additionally, your problem and the length of time its been around has a major impact on how long it will take to get you better. It is usually best to allow things to settle down after treatment for a few days, so initially we usually see patients either twice a week or weekly depending on the level of severity of symptoms. As your problem resolves, the time between visits is usually increased.
