Acupuncture: Bringing old techniques into a new setting

Dr. Jeffrey Behringer has been practicing at Niobrara Community Hospital as an Emergency Room physician and some-times clinic fill in for almost three years. He has watched the shift in the clinical world as more and more facilities and insurance agencies are encouraging physicians to seek alternatives for pain management for their patients outside of narcotics. As pressure has mounted for physicians to find other ways of helping their patients he has sought a different route to treating his patients instead of a transfer of care for those pain management cases to pain clinics, which are often difficult to access for may rural patients. Instead, Dr. Behringer has chosen to go an alternate route and become certified as a practitioner of acupuncture. In 2018 he certified through the Helms Medical Institute, an accredited institute of continuing medical education that has been training physicians about clinical acupuncture since 1982.
