Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Help
Terrorist acts, violence, domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse are some of the traumatic events that can leave serious psychological and emotional scars on the victim. Veterans who have been involved in the war zone may also go through different types of trauma during the war, which can leave a lasting impact on their psyche.
These victims will respond to such traumatic events in various ways. They may feel fear, anger, concern, or helplessness, which are typical reactions to a violent, malicious or another traumatic event. These traumatic experiences can have long term effects, which may include symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
As the social challenges continue to rise in the world, the PTSD disorder is also becoming increasingly common in the society. Ketamine Therapy is one of the most effective treatment options to address the symptoms of PTSD. The Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles, led by the committed and fantastic Dr. Steven L Mandel, provides ketamine infusion treatments to patients in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Orange County, California, and other cities and towns across the horizon.
Victim Reaction to Trauma
The victims of traumatic events may show a range of reactions, including:
- General distress or an aggravation of existing PTSD symptoms
- Lack of sleep, easily losing temper, drinking excessive alcohol
- Avoiding reminders about the event, or staying away from social settings
- New traumatic events may trigger old memories
- Becoming overly vigilant, guarded or protective
- Being mentally preoccupied with potential danger
Researchers also say that people who repeatedly expose themselves to disturbing images from TV, digital media and newspapers are at a higher risk of developing PTSD over time. If the patient already suffers from PTSD symptoms, the condition may worsen if they continue to remain connected through media with the trauma that they had experienced in the past.
Research studies show that victims could react similarly and have symptoms of PTSD following any type of violent trauma or abuse. Ketamine Therapy, which is already proven to be an effective solution to treatment various types of depressive disorders can be one of the important solutions to address the symptoms of PTSD, and help improve the patient’s physical and mental health and overall quality of life.
PTSD Treatment with Ketamine
Traditional antidepressants often prove to be inadequate in treating the symptoms PTSD, or may produce very slow outcomes along with serious side effects. Ketamine Infusion Therapy, on the other hand, can work successfully to resolve the symptoms of PTSD in a safe and effective manner. Ketamine Therapy is administered through IV at sub-anesthetic doses of 0.5 mg/kg.
The anesthesia specialist will deliver this low dose in a clinical environment to monitor patient response and avoid any wrong dosage or risk to the patient’s health. Ketamine infusions can be provided in an in-office environment while the patient rests comfortable in a chair for about one hour.
According to recent research, just one low dose of Ketamine Therapy received intravenously for 40 minutes can lead to quick reduction in PTSD symptoms. Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles receives patients from Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Orange County, California, and nearby areas in The Golden State for ketamine infusion treatments.
