Lifestyle modification, healthy diet and regular exercises are important even as we manage the symptoms of pain using acupuncture. Co-management with our medical and allied health colleagues is essential in ensuring the best treatment outcome.
However, there is a big difference in how individuals respond to acupuncture treatment. While some patients have reported improvement immediately or within the next few days, there are also patients who do not respond to acupuncture. In general, complex or chronic conditions may require more treatment sessions before noticing observable benefits.
