I would like to raise a question to the acupuncturists members of this forum. The question is simple:
How many acupuncture treatments you do before saying to the patient that it is nor worth continue treatment?
Usually for pain I give 5 inicial sessions for example to see if the treatment is worth doing or not. But for other problemas such as certain cases of stroke, advanced cases of facial paralysis or neuropraxia I prefer to give 8 appointments.
I have colleagues that do 10, 20 and in a case that I saw 30 acupuncture treatments and didn´s advice tha patient to quit.
I wuld like to know your opinion about the same subject.
