The theory and methodology of Chinese medicine is such that specialization is not necessary to achieve good results.  Acupuncturists with a solid grounding in the medical philosophy and its application can treat all kinds of disorders. Whether you’re coming in with back pain, headaches, or IBS, Acupuncturists are still diagnosing based on patterns and the balancing principles of the medicine.

That said, practitioners do have various levels of experience with and knowledge of certain conditions which can facilitate better outcomes. It is generally a good idea to seek out a practitioner who has achieved good results in your area of concern and is more familiar with your situation.
