The number of treatment sessions varies with each patient. Many patients have reported partial or complete relief of pain after only one treatment. Patients with a healthy immune system generally require fewer treatments. Studies show that an average person requires 4 to 6 treatment sessions given at 4 to 6 week interval in order to get a satisfactory healing. The current data accumulated by the HKIMM (The Hong Kong Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine) showed that Chinese patients usually need 3-4 treatments for satisfactory pain relief. Of course this requires further studies to draw a final conclusion. Musculoskeletal physician will evaluate the patient’s progress and formulate a tailor-made treatment program for each patient.



必須治療多少次才可取得滿意的疼痛緩解以及多久注射一次?

每位患者治療次數不盡相同。很多患者只經一次注射疼痛便部分緩解或完全無痛。

因為每個人的體質都不同,所以每位患者的治療次數會不盡相同。擁有健康免疫功能的患者通常所需的治療次數較少。外國的研究顯示若想取得滿意的康復效果,一般的患者平均要接受4-6次治療,每隔4-6周治療一次。但有些患者只需一次保絡治療就可達到滿意的治療效果。由香港肌骼研究中心 (HKIMM) 最近收集的數據顯示,華人患者通常要完成3-4次治療才會有滿意的治療效果。但最後的結論還有待進一步的研究。肌骼科醫生會評估每位患者的進展情況並為每位患者制定個人的、獨特的治療方案
