PTSD Symptoms After an Auto Accident

Post-traumatic stress disorder, also referred to as PTSD, is a psychological or mental health condition that develops in people who have experienced a traumatic, horrifying event. PTSD is primarily associated with soldiers returning from combat, although, this emotional ailment is not limited to military combat situations. As a matter of fact, automobile accidents are one of the leading causes of post-traumatic stress disorder nationwide.

For most people involved in an auto collision, the feelings of shock and fear may be difficult to deal with at first, but with time, patience, and plenty of self-care, their emotional health will generally restore on its own. But, if the symptoms worsen or they last for months or even years without improvement and these begin to interfere with the individual’s everyday functioning, they could have developed PTSD.

The most difficult feature about identifying PTSD, and therefore treating it, involves the numerous, different ways the condition may arise for each person. While several people can experience the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder as bad dreams or nightmares, other can experience them as anxiety in crowded places.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Being involved in a car crash is an undesirable and unexpected circumstance where a majority of individuals can suffer a variety of both physical and emotional harm, such as whiplash and back complications, and the uneasy feelings which result from the aftermath can often be overwhelming. However, these feelings can occasionally keep an individual from living a normal life after the incident. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
