Effects of Ohio Medical Malpractice: Treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with Yoga April 27, 2012.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health issue that many victims of severe medical malpractice cases may face. Once diagnosed, patients are usually treated for this psychological disorder with a combination of psychological therapy and anti-depressant and anxiety medications. However, some patients find that there are other helpful, non-traditional therapies in addition to their regular treatment, including yoga.

Yoga has many stress-relieving elements, including breathing, stretching and relaxation exercises that have shown to help alleviate the symptoms of the anxiety and depression that often accompany PTSD. Other symptoms of this condition may include trouble sleeping, loss of concentration, anger, detachment, and weight fluctuations.

Yoga has been proven to regulate and normalize emotional and physical states. Because of this, the benefits of this type of exercise can be very effective for those suffering not only from PTSD, but also other emotional and physiological ailments that may develop after being the victim of medical malpractice.

If you are struggling with PTSD as a result of a life-changing accident that occurred at a doctor’s hands, you should know that you may have grounds to file a claim against any and all negligent parties involved, which may include your doctor, nurse, hospital, or other health care professionals.
