Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects an estimated 24 million people throughout the course of their life and can be caused by a range of events such as witnessing a death, serving as a soldier, experiencing a severe shock or loss, or many other reasons. For sufferers of PTSD, there is actually nothing “post” about it; in their minds, they are reliving that moment over and over again. Often, these recurring flashes of memory are true-to-life, and people can feel trapped within their traumas. Symptoms of PTSD include depression and anxiety, obsession with the traumatic event, delusion, weight loss and change of mood, nightmares and difficulty interacting socially. These symptoms usually appear within three months of the traumatic event, and can last for months or even years. The NeuroLIFE Institute uses innovative therapies and emergent technologies to target and stimulate areas of the brain that have been damaged. When the brain is forced to process and respond in these areas, patients can see signs of progress such as improved sleep, lower anxiety levels and better stress management.
