PTSD Treatment

Let Us Restore Your Health

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is caused by a terrifying event, whether witnessed or experienced first-hand. 

The most common symptoms of PTSD are unwanted flashbacks, intense nightmares, and severe anxiety. Many also experience intrusive thoughts, which are unwanted memories or excessive thinking about the event that you can’t control. It’s unknown why some develop PTSD and others don’t, but there are treatment options available for those seeking help. 

At Restoring Wellness Solutions, we know how quickly this condition can become debilitating if left untreated. That’s why we are committed to treating not just the symptoms, but the underlying condition in our patients as well.

What Causes PTSD?

PTSD is a disorder that typically develops in people who have either witnessed or experienced a traumatizing event. Doctors are not sure why some people develop PTSD and others don’t, but it’s believed to be a mix of stressful experiences, genetic traits, and the way your body reacts to stress. People of all ages can develop the disorder, and while healing may look different for everyone, treatment is available to help those who are willing to seek it out.

What PTSD Can Look Like

Symptoms of PTSD include intense nightmares, periods of emotional distress, and recurrent flashbacks of the event. Symptoms can be grouped into four types: intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, and changes in physical and emotional changes. Symptoms can arise shortly after the event occurs, or may not appear until years afterwards.

How to Cope

Luckily, there are many treatment options available for PTSD. Traditionally these include psychotherapy, medication, or some combination of the two. In recent years, researchers have demonstrated ketamine infusion therapy to be an effective treatment option for those struggling with PTSD. No matter what the symptoms, timeline, or the experience that caused it, Restoring Wellness Solutions can help.

Ketamine Offers Hope for Mental Health Disorders

How Ketamine Can Help with PTSD

Many traditional treatment options can take weeks or months for the person to feel its effects. For some, the relief never comes. That’s where ketamine infusion therapy differs. 

Ketamine infusion therapy works by targeting glutamate and other neurotransmitters in the brain that play an important part in the development and symptoms of mood disorders, like PTSD.

Ketamine treatment works by interacting with the NMDA receptor and glutamate – two parts of the brain essential for communication and connection. For people who have tried different methods to treat their condition to no avail, ketamine infusion therapy may be a viable option.
