For acute illnesses, meetings take place every day or every two days, in case of chronic disease, once or twice a week. A course of treatment consists of 7-15 sessions. To the extent that after five sessions there is no improvement, it is useless to continue the care with acupuncture, because the body does not respond to this method.
The longer the treatment, the lesser are the chances of curing the sick.
Of course, this applies to acute diseases. If you are sick for years, the healing will take time.
The chiropractor can perfectly complement the acupuncture sessions. This case is one where two opposing treatments are worth more than two of similar nature.The younger patients are easier to heal than older, because unlike these self-regulating their reaction is much faster. The rapid and sustained action of acupuncture can also be observed in the case of functional disorders, that is to say diseases with no alteration of organic. This intervention also benefit those toothaches and headaches, neuralgia, localized on different points, spasms of the gall bladder, bladder or uterus. Acupuncture is sometimes reduce the size of uterine fibroids, slows the development of asthma, works effectively on insomnia, accelerated rehabilitation after a brain hemorrhage.
With a little less effective, this method can treat gastritis, cholecystitis, eczema, heart spasms, chronic inflammation and hypertension. It can not provide a significant improvement in cases of autism in children, atrophic paralysis, diabetes and severe hormonal disorders.
But acupuncture can help the patient in cases organic lesion. If full recovery can be expected, a significant improvement can sometimes be found in reducing symptoms.
