When and why to do second treatment? Question for Scott Roberts

Posted by Helen on 4/19/00 at 00:00 (019016)

I am having many downs and some ups. And this is actually worse than before the treatment, so I am feeling worried. I hope there will be improvement in the next four weeks. I am cautious about retreating at 12 weeks, especially since I seem to have gotten worse. Does anyone know if a second treatment is a good idea in all cases? Has anyone done two treatments and what has been their feedback? Good luck everyone.

Scott: It is important that you tell us what your level of activity is; you have not mentioned this, and since you say you are much improved, I'd like to know what you are doing that you couldn't do before. Can you describe how you are walking for longer periods of time, or standing or other challenging activities that you wouldn't have done before Ossatron? Thanks.
