Acupuncture is a process. Several treatment studies show a typical treatment plan will usually consist of six to fifteen treatments over a three to five week period, with an evaluation after the 8th treatment.
For example, if treatment frequency is:
Once per week – may take 40 weeks to heal
Twice per week – may take 16-20 treatments
Three per week – may take 10-12 treatments
Every day for 5 days – may be done at the end of the 5th treatment.
It is recommended that you have 2 more treatments after you are 100% better to stabilize.
