Battlefield Acupuncture is a fairly new form of acupuncture created by the U.S. Military. It was created to get service members out of pain quickly in order to return to their duties without using opioids. Unlike Chinese or Korean acupuncture, the goal of battlefield acupuncture is not to balance the chi to help the body heal itself, but to get the patient pain relief as quickly as possible. This treatment method is done on the ear (auriculotherapy) with tiny needles that stay in the ear.
Dr. Rachum received training in Battlefield Acupuncture in Nov. 2019. He has used this treatment method with many of his VA patients and had very good success treating their pain conditions. This method of treatment is not limited for use among only military patients.
Many times Dr. Rachum uses a combination of traditional acupuncture and Battlefield Acupuncture. One method is to help the body balancing its chi to heal oneself and the other is to address quick pain relief. Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Battlefield Acupuncture take different approaches to pain relief that combined is very helpful to chronic pain sufferers.
