PTSD is a mental health condition that develops after you’ve experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. After the traumatic incident, you may have trouble readjusting to your life and processing the trauma leading to PTSD. Veterans who have survived violence during war are often affected by this condition.
The primary symptoms of PTSD are:
Living with PTSD is stressful, and it takes its toll. People with PTSD are significantly more likely to experience other mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. People living with PTSD are also more likely to abuse substances.
Fortunately, there are numerous treatments available to help people heal from PTSD.
Traditionally, PTSD is treated with a combination of psychotherapy, geared towards helping the person safely address and resolve their trauma, paired with antidepressants to moderate their PTSD symptoms. While this treatment plan can be effective, it can also be frustrating. Finding the right type and dose of antidepressants often takes considerable time, leaving you suffering from all of your symptoms as you wait.
To offer fast, highly effective relief, Summit Ketamine Innovations offers ketamine infusion therapy. This treatment directly addresses the chemical imbalances in your brain that cause your PTSD symptoms, bringing relief to most patients in as little as a few weeks.
