Does ART Hurt?

The treatments can sometimes be uncomfortable depending on the severity of the condition and the patient's pain tolerance. If there is any discomfort with treatment, the intensity of the treatment can be varied according to each patient's pain tolerance. In other words, if it hurts, the doctor can go lighter, adjusting discomfort to a level the patient is comfortable with.

Further, even if the treatment is uncomfortable and reproduces symptoms, this is only temporary and will stop a few seconds after the treatment is ended.
