How many treatments will you need?

This question needs to be answered on an individual basis after a complete history and examination has been performed to get to the root of your problem and what has brought you in for treatment.

  • Headaches arising from the neck (Cervicogenic headache)
  • Inability to relax
  • Joint pains including hip and knee pain occurring from osteoarthritis
  • General acute and chronic back pain
  • Generalized aches and pains
  • Lumbago
  • Mechanical neck pain
  • Prevention of migraines
  • Minor sports injuries
  • Muscle spasms
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries/disorders
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder complaints
  • Soft tissue disorders of the shoulder
  • Pregnancy-related aches and pains

In general, if you have a fairly recent or acute problem, then it is likely to be sorted in as few as 1-2 treatments along with some self-care advice. However, if you come in seeking treatment due to something chronic that has been going on for months or years, then you can expect it will take more time to address and correct this problem. On average, people tend to need between 6-12 treatments to see a significant improvement. This comes along with prescribed home exercises, dietary advice, and any recommended lifestyle modifications. All of this will be addressed through the course of care.

Getting you back to health and managing yourself going forward is the main goal for every patient. No one will ever be told they need more treatments than they need, and no one will ever be told they need less treatments than they actually need. Of course time and money are considerations for everyone, and some may not be able to proceed with the recommended care plan. But you will still be told openly and honestly what is recommended for you. And please feel comfortable to ask any additional questions you may have.
