Musculoskeletal injuries resulting in pain are one of the most common reasons for disability and missed duty among military personnel. Preliminary research has shown auricular therapy as a potential adjunctive treatment in this setting. This study aimed to randomize 150 subjects to examine whether the addition of a specific auricular therapy protocol to standard care will have a beneficial impact on the pain and functionality of subjects who sustain an acute or sub-acute musculoskeletal injury.
