How many treatments will I require?

It depends how long you have had the problem; how old you are; how fit you are; how serious your problem is; your lifestyle; stress levels; diet and whether you follow our advice on rehabilitation exercises and visit frequency.

For example, a fit young person with a one week history of back pain, may need two to four sessions. An older person with a long history of recurring back pain may need six to ten sessions to get better.

Usually you will respond best to two visits a week for the first week or two and then less frequently as you improve.

If you have had a problem for many years it means you have a chronic problem that might need more regular treatments. We will always discuss treatment options with you so that you understand why we are treating you and what we can hope to achieve together.
