Each patient is different. Acute problems tend to experience some relief right away while chronic conditions may respond more slowly. In general, 2 to 4 treatments per week for 8 to 16 treatments are required before significant relief can be experienced for chronic conditions. Many of the conditions patients suffer from did not appear over night. Much of the time the illness gradually developed over time and only when the symptoms begin to interfere with daily life do we seek treatments. Thus, resolving the illness may also take some time. Some patients respond favorably after only one or two treatments. Some may not improve at all until the eighth or ninth treatment. Others still may require two or three treatments per week for several months for maximum results. The key to remember is that these treatments are helping your body restore necessary balance at your pace.
