Battlefield acupuncture providers combine innovation with tradition
Staff Sgt. Troy Ferrell, non-commissioned officer in charge of the urology clinic at Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center on Joint Base San Antonio, Lackland, Texas, receives battlefield acupuncture treatment in his ear for his knee and back pain. The clinic offers treatments every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on a walk-in basis for patients who are looking for an alternative method to traditional pain management medications.
