When patients start contemplating acupuncture for pain or any other condition, they have a variety of questions regarding the effectiveness of treatment and what it will mean for their quality of life, particularly the schedule of their sessions. One of the most frequent questions they have is “How often do I have to go?” The last thing that patients want is to be tethered to any form of therapy for an undetermined period of time. It’s helpful that prospective acupuncture participants get a clear idea of what their treatment routine will look like prior to committing themselves to this therapy, or any other, for that matter.
The truth is that the conditions that cause patients to seek acupuncture are as unpredictable as they are disruptive. Each patient will respond to acupuncture in their own way, and will experience progress at their own rate. That being said, acupuncture can be scheduled as often as five times per week, although this level of frequency is generally reserved for patients with more serious conditions. Generally speaking, the longer the patient has been living with their condition, the longer and more frequent their course of acupuncture will be. It’s recommended that patients continue to monitor their progress and check in with their practitioners regarding their continued need for treatment. It does no good to rush the healing process.
