Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. It can affect anyone at any age.

For many, time and self-care can heal the trauma of such events, but for some, the experience leads to long-lasting symptoms that can interfere with daily activities. If these symptoms persist for months or years, you may have PTSD, and getting treatment is crucial to recovering from the trauma of your experience.

At Big Sky Ketamine Care, we are here to help you process what you’ve been through, which can help to reduce your symptoms and improve function.

Symptoms

Symptoms of PTSD are generally grouped into four primary types:

  • Avoidance 
  • Changes in physical and emotional reactions
  • Intrusive memories 
  • Negative changes in thinking and mood

Those with PTSD may experience symptoms from one or all of these categories.

Treatment

We are a compassionate practice and know that the road to feeling like yourself again can be overwhelming at times. We take the time to thoroughly assess your symptoms and history before we recommend a course of treatment for you. Common treatment options include therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes.

One unique treatment option we offer is ketamine infusion therapy. When you witness a traumatic event, certain areas of your brain may become damaged. As a result, you may experience an array of uncomfortable side-effects that interfere with your cognitive abilities and quality of life. Ketamine infusion therapy helps to provide your brain with important nutrients to repair any pathways that may be compromised. Unlike other traditional treatments or medications, there are no long-term side effects associated with ketamine infusions.
