The Army Uses Acupuncture to Help Pain

I recently came across a great article about how the Army is utilizing unconventional treatments such as acupuncture and massage therapy when it comes to caring for soldiers and their pain. They are realizing that pain has both an emotional component as well as a psychological component.

The army isn’t going to stop prescribing pain medicine altogether, but rather look at other methods and alternative treatments. Changing a culture and turning skeptics into believers will take time but this is a step in the right direction and the military is a great place to bring about such change!
