Vet Receives New Treatment For Chronic Pain

When you think of the opioid epidemic in the United States, what comes to mind? You might not think of true American heroes like Justin Minyard, recipient of two purple hearts.

On Tuesday, Minyard will speak along with Dr. James Brunz at an event at the Orthopedic Institute in Sioux Falls. Minyard has received a type of treatment that Dr. Brunz has worked with.

"We're trying to educate the public, despite the fact that this therapy has been around for years, there's very little awareness in the general public of this therapy, and its availability here in our area," Brunz said.

The presentation is noon Tuesday at the Orthopedic Institute. For more information about how to RSVP, visit their website.
