Q: What can I expect after acupuncture treatment?
A: Patients often experience dramatic results in their first treatment. Some patients experience an immediate total or partial relief of their pain or other symptoms. This relief may last or some pain or symptoms may return. In a few cases, there may be no immediate relief only to notice the pain or other symptoms diminish over the next couple of days. A course of treatment is always prescribed which gives you the best chance of obtaining lasting results. Generally, you should expect to feel better as your course of treatment progresses.
