WE TAKE THE GUESSWORK OUT OF PSYCHIATRY

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can make you feel anxious, jumpy, depressed, angry, or numb, but you don’t have to let it steal your life.

Sadly, many people are exposed to trauma during their lives, whether they experience it themselves or witness it. It is common for people who live through trauma—such as a natural disaster, car accident, physical assault, or mass shooting—to develop symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Symptoms of PTSD include:

  • Intense recollections, such as flashbacks and nightmares
  • Inability to recall certain aspects of what happened
  • Avoidance of people, places, or things that are reminders of the event
  • Distressing memories
  • Inability to stop thinking about the incident
  • Increased or excessive anxiety
  • Always being on guard or “jumpy”
  • Feeling emotionally numb
  • Problems with sleep
  • Anger and irritability
  • Depressive symptoms
  • Social isolation

These symptoms usually diminish as time passes. Unfortunately, not everyone heals with time. About 1 out of 30 U.S. adults suffers from PTSD, but it can strike people of any age, including children. Left untreated, PTSD can ruin lives and even lead to suicide. When symptoms of PTSD are holding you back in your daily life, that’s when you need to seek help.

Struggling with PTSD can be distressing. It’s important to understand that having symptoms of PTSD is not a character flaw or a sign of personal weakness. It is a biological problem in the brain. Unfortunately, most doctors never look at the brain with imaging, so people often go undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed and given the wrong kind of treatment.

Getting the Right Treatment Depends on the Right Diagnosis

At Amen Clinics, we use leading-edge brain imaging technology to help identify PTSD in the brain. With the world’s largest database of functional brain scans — 150,000 and growing — from patients from all 50 states and 120 countries, our physicians are able to more accurately diagnose PTSD and related conditions than any other healthcare professionals.

Since 1989, Amen Clinics has helped thousands of people overcome PTSD with targeted solutions that are proven to produce higher than average success rates.

We believe in taking a comprehensive brain-body approach to treatment that involves the least toxic, most effective strategies.
