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.
