Abstract:

Medical Acupuncture was privileged to host a roundtable discussion among military leaders and acupuncture specialists late last summer. Moderated by Dr. Wayne B. Jonas, the discussion focuses on exciting new military uses of acupuncture, including wounded troop evacuation and traumatic brain injury TBI treatment for wounded warriors. The discussion highlights how different specialists come together, using acupuncture, and touches on the possible mechanism of action of this technique.
