US Army recommends acupuncture for injured soldiers

Friday 10th September, 2010

The United States Army is to recommend more use of acupuncture to help treat injured soldiers after successful programs for post traumatic stress disorder.

The Veterans Military administration already studies the use of various alternative treatment like acupuncture to treat soldiers. Now the Army surgeon General has released a report making recommendations about the care of Army personnel with regards to pain.

The Army Pain Management Task Force report suggests the use of many treatments like acupuncture. Currently, many of the VA hospitals and care centres do not have acupuncturists on staff but will refer personnel who have a need to local therapists.
