In an effort to reduce the number of wounded warriors on prescribed pain medication and offer them new complementary and alternative therapies, the U.S. Army is making an effort to change its approach to pain management. U.S. Army Surgeon General Lt. General Eric B. Schoomaker is leading the effort to develop a holistic, multidisciplinary and multimodal strategy for treating soldiers and other patients with acute and chronic pain. His position is based on recommendations from the final report of the Army Pain Management Task Force. The report calls for the use of integrative and alternative measures such as yoga, acupuncture, meditation, biofeedback and cognitive-behavioral therapy in conjunction with conventional medicine for a comprehensive approach to pain management.
