The 96th Medical Group recently opened the Air Force’s first Invisible Wounds Center at Eglin Air Force Base. The center will serve as a regional treatment center for post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, associated pain conditions and psychological injuries. The center is ready to treat retirees, Guard, Reserve, and active duty members from the Air Force and sister services who carry the weight of invisible wounds. The IWC, modeled after the best practices of the Intrepid Spirit Centers, will assemble a team of 18 specialties under one roof, providing treatment in an individually tailored, holistic and integrated fashion, using a combination of conventional and complimentary therapies.
