ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Pain Management Task Force (PMTF), created by the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) to improve current pain management methods, and the PMTF's Pain Management Campaign Plan. Colonel Kevin Galloway, chief of staff for the PMTF, says PMTF looks at acupuncture, yoga and biofeedback as treatments to integrate into the Army health care system. Soldiers are reported to perform yoga exercises, for instance, to help relieve pain and increase fitness. MEDCOM hopes to coordinate with representatives from other Army initiatives.
