Searching for a Cure for PTSD

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a complex condition that can affect anyone who has experienced some kind of trauma. Victims of assault, veterans, and survivors of a natural disaster are often prone to developing PTSD.

In the aftermath of a life-altering event, people may find themselves feeling irritable, anxious, or strangely detached from everything. Their friends and family usually notice the change in personality and become concerned.

PTSD can be very difficult to deal with, typically requiring treatment with medications and therapy. However, recent findings of a doctor in Chicago may lead to faster, more effective treatments for the disorder.
