Skilled Advocacy in Atlanta, Georgia
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a serious condition that affects many victims of work-related injuries. Certain “triggers” can cause the sufferer to experience the heightened awareness and adrenaline rush associated with the body’s “survival mode,” leaving him or her unable to cope with many everyday situations. Other symptoms of PTSD may include:
- Heart palpitations
- Accelerated pulse
- Sudden sweating
- Hazy vision
- Sudden and extreme anxiety
In recent years, brain scans have clearly demonstrated the pathological effects that significant trauma can leave on a person. PTSD is not just an imagined response. Medical experts have discovered that this condition physically alters the chemistry of the victim’s body and brain. Some potentially effective treatments for PTSD include counseling, therapy, medications, and a method called eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
