Ketamine Treatment is Providing Relief for PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a form of anxiety that affects 7.7 million adults. It is normal for people experiencing a traumatic event to have feelings of being on edge, difficulty concentrating or trouble sleeping. When these feelings persist into months or even years you may have PTSD. Traumatic events can include the person directly experiencing the event, witnessing the traumatic event in person, learning of a family member or close friend involved in a traumatic event or experiencing repeated exposure to aversive details of traumatic events (such as EMT’s/paramedics, firefighters, police officers, nurses and doctors). Symptoms include nightmares, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts of the distressing memories, emotional numbness, avoidance of people or places that are reminders of the traumatic event, difficulty sleeping or concentrating, feeling jumpy, agitated or angry.
Review of current literature shows compelling research that ketamine infusion therapy has been associated with significant and rapid reduction of PTSD symptom severity. At Thrive Center for Health, low dose ketamine infusions in conjunction with psychological therapy, will begin to give hope for a better quality of life for patients experiencing PTSD.
