How many treatments will I need to have?

The obvious answer is 'how long is a piece of string?' as it varies from patient to patient and on the type of injury or condition being treated. 


That said, to give you an idea, here is some information from a random sample of 100 of Alistair's patients.  The average number of 'contacts' (i.e. treatment sessions) was 3.2 times.  So you might expect to need a total of 3 or 4 visits to get 'back to normal'.


The average was higher for some body parts than others:

  • Ankle/foot 3.0 treatments
  • Shoulder 3.7 treatments
  • Knee 3.6 treatments
  • Cervical spine 3.0 treatments
  • Lumbar spine 4.2 treatments
  • Thoracic spine 3.0 treatments
  • Hip 3.0 treatments
  • Hand/wrist/elbow/other 2.4 treatments


Most body parts required a similar number of treatments for all patients (low variability), however there was a large difference in the number of treatments for two body parts, namely:

  • the lumbar spine, which varied from 2 treatments to 11 treatments
  • the cervical spine, which ranged from 2 treatments to 7 treatments
