Trauma Q & A

What is trauma?

Trauma is any type of experience you go through that causes extreme fear or distress. Trauma might happen because of:

  • Physical abuse
  • Mental abuse
  • Death of a loved one
  • Automobile accidents
  • Other types of accidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Military combat
  • Other traumatic events

Trauma can negatively affect your physical and mental health, making it difficult to maintain strong relationships with other people and excel at work or school.

What are common signs and symptoms of past trauma?

Common signs and symptoms linked with trauma or other stressful life events include:

  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Fearfulness
  • Flashbacks
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Upsetting dreams
  • Problems focusing
  • Emotional distress

Complications due to trauma might include drug or alcohol misuse, eating disorders, and suicidal thoughts or actions. At the first sign of emotional problems, visit Integrated Premier Group Specialty for an evaluation and treatment. 

How is a trauma-related condition diagnosed?

To find out if you have a mental health disorder related to trauma, your Integrated Premier Group Specialty provider discusses your medical history, symptoms, and past traumatic life events. 

They complete a physical exam and comprehensive psychiatric assessment and may recommend you undergo blood tests to detect or rule out specific health problems. Your provider then personalizes a treatment plan that’s best for you.

What are common treatments for trauma?

If you have PTSD or another condition linked with past traumatic experiences, your Integrated Premier Group Specialty provider may recommend one or more of the following treatments:

Lifestyle changes

Lifestyle changes may help you better deal with past trauma. Get regular exercise, eat nutritious foods, spend time outdoors or with loved ones, meditate, or try other relaxation techniques.

Medications

Taking certain medications can reduce symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other disorders linked with past trauma.

Counseling or psychotherapy

Integrated Premier Group Specialty specializes in counseling that helps you better cope with traumatic life events. Your provider can see you in-office, counsel you virtually, or travel to your assisted living or group home using mobile services.

To help you deal with past trauma or a mental health disorder, call the Integrated Premier Group Specialty office or book an appointment online today.
