Is there a limit to have many times I can have acupuncture every week?

Is there a limit to have many times I can have acupuncture every week?

No: No, but realistically that could be quite expensive to have accupuncture more than 1-2 times a week. The only limit would probably be your insurance and your pocketbook... And of course how much free time you have. ...Read more

Acupuncture (Definition)

Acupuncture is a treatment based on Chinese medicine -- a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of Chinese medicine is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways (meridians) in the body. Each meridian corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. Achieving the proper flow of qi is thought to create health and wellness. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, which are complementary opposites. According to Chinese medicine, everything in nature has both yin and yang. An imbalance of qi (too much, too little, or blocked flow) causes disease. To restore balance to the qi, an acupuncturist inserts needles at points along the meridians. These acupuncture points are places where the energy pathway is close to the ...Read more

Core strengthening: Exercises that strengthen the core can be helpful in maintaining integrity and reduce stress on the spine. Typically disc herniations will resolve on their own as soon as 3-6 weeks or as late as 6-9 months. Just depends on how you take care of yourself, exercise, anti-inflammatories, tylenol (acetaminophen) and if you need to lose weight that will help immensely. ...Read more

How many times can I have sex in a day? How long and how many sex is allowable to have in a day? Is 7 times a day too much for a woman?

How many times can I have sex in a day? How long and how many sex is allowable to have in a day? Is 7 times a day too much for a woman?

Whatever feels good: There is no "allowable" frequency of sex if nobody is being forced and no pain or discomfort. You can have sex as often as you wish with no harm, although 7+ times might make you sore the next day. Of course if with multiple partners, you are almost guaranteed to get STDs and would be at high risk for HIV, even with consistent condom use. But no risk with a single monogamous partner. ...Read more

Surgery/orthopedist: I am going to assume that knee dislocation in your case is knee cap dislocation. If your knee caps are dislocating multiple times and you have exhausted conservative measures such as therapy and bracing then you should strongly consider surgery to realign your knee caps. Discuss this with an orthopedic surgeon specializing in knee reconstructive surgery/sports to discuss your surgical options. ...Read more

I have had tubes put in each ear twice, and now i seem to be in need of another. Is there any permanent solution?  Home remedy for discomfort/pain?

Complex: Pain usually improved by tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil for short term. Need to talk to your ENT dr pre-op to see if the recurrence is an issue due to eustachian tube angulation / malformation / whatever--and if an enlarging procedure or stenting would be reasonable to try to maintain normal drainage, stop infection recurrences and prevent need for tubes a 4th time. ...Read more
