Connecting Mind And Body
When a traumatic incident occurs, the human body works to adapt both mentally and physically as a way to buffer itself against the harm. As such, it is crucial to properly address the emotional aspects of chronic pain, including that stemming from PTSD. Depression is a particularly common manifestation of PTSD. It is therefore essential to make the effort to discover the root of a given patient's feelings of depression and PTSD symptoms, even before taking steps to treat chronic pain.

Each and every one of these can benefit from chiropractic treatment.
It must be borne in mind that prior traumatic experiences need not dictate future events. While PTSD is not defined as "curable," effective treatments and management techniques do exist.
