So much of what is learned in brain science stays in science. It’s rare for practitioners and scientists to work in conjunction, translating the latest advances into programs to improve the lives of individuals. That’s what makes the Center unique.
What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) may be experienced by individuals who have been exposed to extreme or life-threatening situations. Symptoms range from irritability, flashbacks, or nightmares to physiological symptoms such as sweaty palms or increased heart rate.
Some of these symptoms may be helpful in a threatening situation, but can be debilitating when they persist long after the danger has passed – negatively affecting your life and the people around you. If you do experience PTSD there are effective treatments to help you feel better.
PTSD in Returning Service Members
At the Center for BrainHealth we are developing a unique treatment specifically designed to meet the needs of OEF/OIF veterans. Research indicates that combining cognitive processing therapy (CPT) with magnetic stimulation therapy may enhance recovery from PTSD symptoms; we’re investigating the overall benefits of this paired treatment.
