Battle Field Acupuncture / Auricular Acupuncture with Treatment Protocols in the Chiropractic Practice – March 25 & 26, 2023


Battlefield Acupuncture

Battlefield Acupuncture (BFA) is an Auricular Therapy technique (Ear acupuncture) which is utilized on the battlefield where standard western medical protocols cannot be effectively utilized.  It is an effective technique for the reduction of pain.

An article in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation: March 2018 states: “Chronic pain is a serious problem for combat veterans and soldiers. In a sample of 2597 soldiers who had served in Afghanistan and Iraq, 44% reported pain lasting for more than 3 months, half of whom reported pain for 1 year or more.  Besides obvious questions regarding the mechanisms of action, the comparative efficacy, and duration of effects, the Department of Defense and Veterans Health System embrace of BFA presents an opportunity to study the adaption and implementation of this most fascinating complementary technique into traditional western practice. If the promise of BFA holds true, it will add an important treatment option in physiatrists’ arsenal to treat acute and chronic pain.”

This unique treatment also utilized a very special auricular needle called the ASP Needle. This needle is currently being used to treat verterna in most VA hospitals for all types of Auricular acupuncture.  

Battlefield Acupuncture is a technique that originally and still utilizes 5 specific Auricular points.  It is not just using those 5 Auricular points randomly.  There is specific particular pattern, specific point order and specific point combinations, for the treatment for the reduction of pain.  The treatment process includes protocols which enhances the application of the Auricular points.

Dr. Hanson has enhanced the treatment protocols with other brain enhancing protocols which strengthens the effects of the overall treatment.

This technique can be a valuable tool to reduce pain in your patients and let you treat them more effectively.
