How Long Can Relief Last
More than five times longer than taking drugs.
Q. How long could the pain relief last ?
A. The relief of pain after the first acupuncture treatment could usually last 12 hours to a few days, 3 or 4 additional treatments twice per week could completely take your pain away. Let us note, in contrast, the pain relief pills such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Avil) would take at least half hour for you to feel relief, and the relief would last only 3 to 4 hours before you need to take second dose, not to speak of the side effects of these chemicals.
