07/28/2014 - Battlefield Acupuncture; fighting the pain (AFGSC)

Wednesday, July 30, 2014  
MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. -- No one really knows how it began. The most common story is about an Army surgeon in Ancient China who was treating a soldier for chronic back pain. During battle, his patient was shot in the leg by an arrow, and strangely enough his back pain disappeared. Shortly after, another soldier was shot in the same exact spot. He too was relieved of pain he had previously been experiencing. From that moment on the surgeon began sticking his patients with arrows to treat their pain. Thus began acupuncture.
