More than 80 Percent of VA Medical Facilities Offer Integrative Medicine for Pain Management

A new study from the RAND Corporation shows that nearly 80 percent of military medical facilities are offering integrative medicine for pain management and psychological treatment instead of opioids when possible. RAND conducted an environmental scan of military treatment facilities (MTFs) to understand the availability of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), the conditions for which CAM is being used, and the types and process of credentialing and privileging of CAM providers. They found that most MTFs (83 percent) offer CAM services, usually up to eight different types, with relaxation therapy, acupuncture, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and chiropractic being the most common.

Recently, a memory of an experience I had made me think about how we can empower our girls and young women in a culture that is wrought with many obstacles to do so.

In his brief exam (with my clothes on) he lingered in a way that gave me an uncomfortable gut feeling. He asked me questions about my sex life that seemed irrelevant to my issues. He sat unusually close to me and gave me a hug when I left, which no other doctor had ever done. ...

We present a case of a 54-year-old man who had been followed-up for ankylosing spondylitis and presented with pain in the shoulder and pelvic girdles, restricted movement, and morning stiffness for 2 months. Physical examination revealed that the pain was located mostly in the shoulder and pelvic girdles. In addition, increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate revealed the coexistence of the two diseases. Corticosteroid treatment dramatically improved the patient's symptoms and supported the diagnosis. This case demonstrated that ankylosing spondylitis may present polymyalgia-like symptoms, and the two diseases may rarely co...
