Acupuncture Reduces Some TBI Symptoms

Consequent to a TBI many soldiers have to deal with headaches, insomnia, and decreased ability to tolerate stress. At the George E. Whalen Veterans Health Administration (VHA) in Salt Lake City, Utah, acupuncture is being used to provide some relief soldiers with these symptoms. With the use of even a few basic points, patients are reporting a decrease in the intensity of their headaches, better sleep, and increased ability to cope on a daily basis.

Civilians who sustain a TBI from a motor vehicle accident, a fall or a blow to the head, who are living with similar symptoms, may want to give acupuncture a try. It’s cheaper than and has less side effects than prescription medicines over the long run.
