  FAQ: When Should I See an Acupuncturist?  
  It is best to see an acupuncturist in the early stages of any condition. For example, in the case of a stroke, the best time to achieve good results would be as soon as the patient has returned home from the hospital. If the stroke patient waits until the muscles have become very weak or spasm occurs, the treatments will take longer. If multiple sclerosis patients start treatment before they need a wheelchair, they will achieve much greater benefit than if they wait. In my experience, it is very difficult to help a patient to walk once they have started using a wheelchair. It is, however, more common to control bladder and bowel problems and to reduce spasm, even in wheelchair patients.
