The Question of How Often to Visit an Acupuncturist is a Personal One

The question of how often to visit an acupuncturist is a personal one. At the acupuncture clinic of Dr. Lisa Oskardmay, LAc. in Chapel Hill, she finds that patients benefit from seeing the holistic healthcare center at least once every couple of months but then more frequently when problems arise; for instance, one person may want to schedule an appointment on a bi-monthly basis for regular check-ups and care, but then call if they suffer an injury or illness that makes them feel uncomfortable. Others choose to schedule once a month for routine maintenance or even more frequently because they find that care helps them reduce the need for other interventions, such as pain medications. The decision of how often to come in for care is personal.

Nonetheless, following an initial visit to our office, we recommend a treatment plan for patients. A treatment plan helps patients align their healthcare goals with accurate, helpful options. For example, a patient who has had headaches for several years will likely find it beneficial to receive acupuncture care two to three times a week for several weeks, then increase spacing between visits to once a week as progress occurs. Similarly, someone who has just suffered a motor vehicle accident benefits from more routine care in the first month or even two as the body heals. Dr. Oskardmay teaches patients how to use their innate relaxation response to further their healing between visits. It takes the body and mind to heal, to get better, and someone cannot rush their recovery.

Alternately, sometimes people do not have big healthcare problems and want to come in for care on an as-needed basis. Many choose to schedule a follow-up appointment weeks or months in the future. Acupuncture, massage, exercises and nutrition counseling, and chiropractic provided by Dr.Oskardmay at our Acupuncture at Eastowne Clinic are available to anyone who wishes to experience natural healing in a safe, comfortable environment.
