Poking & Prodding: Aaron Rodgers & Acupuncture
It's amazing the kind of star power Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has on and off the field, even when it comes to medicine of all things. Once again, he's been touting the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture to help his injured left calf.
We spoke with an actual acupuncturist who says he's happy Rogers is bringing this technique of using needles for healing to light, whether it's with or without conventional medicine. David Fife with Acupuncture & Holistic Health Associates says acupuncture creates overall good circulation. In turn, creating good health.
Sports management consultant, Joe Sweeney, says it doesn't really matter what issue Rodgers is discussing. He seems to have everyone's divided attention.
Rodgers has also used acupuncture for hamstring issues.
