What is a PTSD Injury?

A PTSD injury, also known as post-traumatic stress disorder injury, is a debilitating condition that can be caused by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. While many people associate PTSD with military veterans, it can affect anyone who has gone through a traumatic experience, including car accidents, physical assault, natural disasters, and more.

When someone experiences a traumatic event, their mind and body can be overwhelmed by the intensity of the situation. This can lead to a range of distressing symptoms, such as intrusive memories, nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, depression, and difficulty sleeping. These symptoms can persist for months or even years after the initial event, significantly impacting a person’s quality of life.

What Are The Symptoms of PTSD?


These intrusive memories can be triggered by reminders of the traumatic event and cause the individual to vividly relive the experience. This can be incredibly distressing and may lead to intense emotions such as fear, anger, or sadness.


Individuals may experience recurring and disturbing dreams related to the traumatic event. These nightmares can be so vivid and intense that they disrupt sleep and lead to feelings of exhaustion and restlessness.

Avoidance Behavior 

PTSD victims may go to great lengths to avoid anything that reminds them of the traumatic event, often leading to a withdrawal from activities, people, or places associated with the trauma. This avoidance can limit the person’s ability to function in their daily life and may isolate them from their support networks.

Emotional Distress

Individuals with PTSD may experience heightened anxiety, irritability, and mood swings. They may have difficulty concentrating or experiencing a sense of joy, leading to a loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed. Some individuals may also experience feelings of guilt or shame related to the traumatic event.

Physical Symptoms

They may experience increased heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating, and trembling as their body reacts to triggers or reminders of the trauma. Individuals may also develop physical health issues, such as headaches, stomachaches, or gastrointestinal problems.

Causes of PTSD

Military Combat: Veterans who have been involved in active combat situations may develop PTSD due to the intense and life-threatening experiences they have endured. The high-stress environment, constant exposure to danger, and witnessing traumatic events can greatly impact their mental health.

Physical or Sexual Assault: Survivors of physical or sexual assault often experience intense feelings of fear, helplessness, and vulnerability. These traumatic events can leave lasting emotional scars and increase the risk of developing PTSD.

Car Accidents: Serious car accidents can be extremely traumatic and result in severe physical injuries and emotional trauma. Survivors may experience recurring memories, nightmares, or panic attacks related to the accident, leading to the development of PTSD.

Witnessing Violence: Individuals who witness acts of violence, such as accidents, criminal acts, or acts of terrorism, can be affected by PTSD. The shock, horror, and helplessness experienced during these events can leave lasting psychological scars.

Childhood Abuse or Neglect: Childhood trauma, such as physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, or neglect, can have a profound impact on mental health. Children who experience prolonged trauma may develop PTSD symptoms that persist into adulthood.

Medical Trauma: Surviving life-threatening medical emergencies, undergoing invasive procedures, or experiencing chronic illness can be traumatic. The intense emotions, pain, and fear associated with medical trauma can contribute to the development of PTSD.

War-Zone Exposure: Civilians living in war zones or conflict-ridden areas may experience ongoing exposure to trauma, including bombings, gunfights, or the loss of loved ones. This repeated exposure to extreme stress can lead to the development of PTSD.

Twenty percent of people who experience a traumatic event will develop PTSD. [1]

How is PTSD Treated?

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with PTSD. It aims to help individuals gain control over their thoughts and reactions to traumatic events.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR combines elements of exposure therapy and cognitive therapy with specific eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation. It helps individuals process traumatic memories and reduce the distress associated with them.
  • Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy: PE involves confronting and gradually exposing oneself to thoughts, feelings, and situations related to the traumatic event in a safe and controlled manner. This helps reduce avoidance and fear responses.
