When can I expect to see progress?

Depending on the severity and complexity of your injury, progress may be seen from the first session or it may take more than 6 sessions (2 to 3 weeks).

The injury is considered complex and severe when:

  • Pain is constant accompanied by arm pain, weakness and numbness
  • Pain is due to a traumatic event
  • Pain had been present for more than 3 months

So the earlier you start with proper treatment, the better you will feel. At the same token, patience is required especially for the complex case.

"There is no such thing as a magic cure"
In medicine, we can only do what we think will work best based on logical clinical reasoning and scientific research.
