Air Force To Train Combat Docs To Use Acupuncture

(AP) Chief Warrant Officer James Brad Smith broke five ribs, punctured a lung and
shattered bones in his hand and thigh after falling more than 20 feet from a Black
Hawk helicopter in Baghdad last month. While he was recovering at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center in Washington, his doctor suggested he add acupuncture to his treatment
to help with the pain. On a recent morning, Col. Richard Niemtzow, an Air Force
physician, carefully pushed a short needle into part of Smith’s outer ear. The soldier
flinched, saying it felt like he “got clipped by something.” By the time three more
of the tiny, gold alloy needles were arranged around the ear, though, the pain from
his injuries began to ease.
