The number and frequency of treatment depends entirely on the condition being treated. These are some general treatment guidelines. Acute conditions that are short in duration may only require 2-3 treatments for complete resolution of the issue. Chronic and stubborn conditions may require up to 10 treatments to respond positively . A general rule is that for every year a person has had a problem, you need a month of weekly treatments. However, most patients should expect some degree of relief in the first 3 to 4 treatments.
