How Many Appointments does it Take to Feel Better?

After your first appointment, you might feel great relief, but that does not mean you are healed. Each patient’s treatment time is different because everyBODY is different. That’s why do in-depth examinations to help determine your best course of treatment. Your recommended treatment plan will be discussed and agreed upon in your report of findings before you begin care. We want to make sure all your questions are answered and you are comfortable moving forward.
