Physical Therapy goes to the source

U.S. Air Force Maj. Adam Frost, 380th Expeditionary Medical Group physical therapist, uses joint manipulation on a patient at the beginning of a treatment at Al Dhafra Air Base, United Arab Emirates, May 17, 2019. Fry involves dry needling, a form of acupuncture, and cupping into his treatments. He has found both to be extremely effective at targeting trigger points, releasing muscle spasms and alleviating pain. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Chris Thornbury)
