Can you solve this puzzle? I bet you can.

First Patient
Last week, a patient of mine who was coming in for help with low energy told me that she also needed to schedule an appointment with her chiropractor. ‘Why?’ I asked. Well, it turns out that her shoulder was bothering her, and because it was ‘structural,’ she needed to see a chiropractor for an adjustment.

Second Patient
This week, a different patient who was coming in for help with arthritis which was bothering her foot and her shoulder (see above) mentioned that she needed to see her doctor because of her recent issue with a significant digestive disorder.

The puzzle is, which of these patients is right?

Is it possible that they are both correct and maybe-not-entirely-correct?

Why yes, you have figured it out!

What can acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture is a part of Chinese medicine, which is a complete medical system. With acupuncture, we treat everything from digestive problems to shoulder problems to back problems to low energy issues. Actually, we treat even more than that.

This is why, when you come in to Acupuncture Works for acupuncture, you are encouraged to complain about everything that bothers you. We do our best to keep you healthy on every level.

The first patient with low energy and a shoulder problem certainly felt better. She also looked amazed at what acupuncture can do. Isn’t it time for you to be amazed?
