Here are all of our articles on PTSD after a car crash.
Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) occurs within the first 4 weeks after exposure to trauma, and is viewed as a risk factor in the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Previous studies have limited their analysis of ASD to short follow-up periods. The authors of this current study had previously assessed the course of ASD at six months following trauma. Now, they hoped to determine ASD two years post-trauma, to better understand its relationship to PTSD.
After the traumatic experience of an auto accident, some people suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). New research suggests your likelihood of having PTSD is higher if you have a neck disability from whiplash.
In a 2012 study, recently returned combat veterans with PTSD had smaller volumes in an area of the brain involved in fear and anxiety responses. This is the first study showing that smaller amygdala is associated PTSD, regardless of severity.
Neck pain is generally caused by a traumatic event, such as a motor vehicle collision. This trauma may also result in persistent posttraumatic stress symptoms or PTSD. Research has shown posttraumatic stress symptoms to be associated with poorer recovery following auto injuries.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), which causes mental and cognitive disorders, can be detected by CT scan. In the scan, a TBI patient will commonly have small hemorrhagic lesions in the cerebral white matter of the brain. When these lesions are present, it has been shown that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) patients are more likely to suffer from neuropsychiatric symptoms.
Patients with chronic pain syndromes frequently exhibit symptoms including nightmares, intrusive and recurrent recollections, and symptoms of increased arousal associated with posttraumatic stress disorder, (PTSD). This study's purpose was to determine the prevalence of PTSD-like symptoms in a population of FMS patients seeking treatment from a pain center. The researchers also set out to evaluate the relationship between the symptoms of FMS, PTSD-like symptoms and disability. Consider
Since a diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) describes long-term stress reactions after trauma, a new diagnosis of Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) has been formulated to describe the immediate reaction to trauma that may develop into PTSD.
Traumatic events such as auto collisions frequently cause both spinal pain and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, few trials have studied the effectiveness of treatments targeting both conditions, and no treatment guidelines have been developed for such cases.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a population of motor vehicle accident survivors. The authors anticipated finding more PCS in MTBI individuals with concurrent PTSD than in TBI patients without PTSD.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a population of motor vehicle accident survivors.
Research on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has shown that those who show signs of dissociation at the time of a traumatic event (known as "peritraumatic dissociation") are more likely to experience acute and chronic PTSD. Until now, there had been little research about who is at risk for peritraumatic dissociation. The authors of a new study set out to examine the relationship between peritraumatic dissociation and prior major depression, prior PTSD, prior trauma, and pr
