Veterans and active military personnel have been using Acupuncture more frequently in the past few years as alternative medical treatment to Western medicine.
Acupuncture has been used in Iraq and here in the United States to treat Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and chronic pain.
Also a large number of returning war veterans are being diagnosed with traumatic brain injury in alarming numbers only secondary to those with post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain. Acupuncture treatment has proven successful in treating all these issues.
Let’s take a few minutes to remember the active military and veterans on this Veterans Day weekend.
