Unfortunately, trauma is very common. Studies show that 70% of adults in the U.S. have experienced some kind of traumatic event.
New research on early childhood reveals that traumatic experiences can have a significant impact on your long-term mental and physical health. By understanding and seeking treatment for the trauma you have experienced, you can improve your quality of life, while also impacting your physical health.
What is Trauma?
Many people who are suffering from trauma may not recognize the signs and symptoms. Emotional and psychological trauma can be caused by exposure to childhood abuse or neglect, car accidents, natural disasters, witnessing acts of violence or medical experiences, like surgery or cancer treatment.
Signs of emotional and mental trauma that require treatment may include vivid flashbacks, persistent frightening thoughts, easy to startle or jumpiness, nightmares, avoidance of certain places or situations, or emotionally distant or disconnected behavior, especially in children.
Unfortunately, experiencing trauma may lead people to struggle with addiction, eating disorders, increased stress responses and panic attacks, and even physical health problems like cardiovascular disease and autoimmune diseases.
