As every body is unique this is very difficult to answer until you have been examined. It also depends on what you mean by better. Most people mean how long before Im out of pain? Pain can start to reduce right from the very first treatment or may take several sessions. At the Healthcare Clinics our initial objective is to relieve the pain. The longer you have had a problem, and the poorer your general condition and health, the longer it will take. The longer you leave a problem the more attention will be required to rectify it.
