Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can manifest in various ways depending on the nature of the traumatic event experienced. Some of the most common types of PTSD include:


Combat PTSD
This type of PTSD is commonly seen in military personnel who have experienced trauma while on active duty.


Sexual assault PTSD
People who have experienced sexual assault, including rape, molestation, or harassment, may develop this type of PTSD.


Natural disaster PTSD
Individuals who have experienced or witnessed natural disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, or floods, may develop this type of PTSD.


Childhood trauma PTSD
Individuals who have experienced physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, neglect, or other traumatic events during childhood may develop this type of PTSD.


Medical trauma PTSD
Individuals who have undergone surgery, experienced a life-threatening illness or injury, or witnessed a traumatic medical event may develop this type of PTSD.

Accidental trauma PTSD
Individuals who have experienced a traumatic accident, such as a car crash or a workplace accident, may develop this type of PTSD.
It’s important to note that PTSD can manifest differently in different individuals and that some people may experience symptoms that do not fit neatly into one of these categories. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of PTSD, it’s important to seek professional help.


We prefer the initial visit to be in-office if possible, allowing you to meet with your provider face to face.

We can also offer a telemedicine appointment through the HIPAA compliant Zoom app if you are not able to come into our office in Punta Gorda.

The most effective treatments for PTSD typically include a combination of therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes. Different people may respond better to different types of therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), or exposure therapy. Medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may also be prescribed to help alleviate symptoms. It’s important to work with a qualified mental health professional to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Recovery from PTSD is a gradual process that can take several months to several years, depending on the severity of the symptoms and the individual’s response to treatment. It’s important to focus on progress rather than a specific timeline and to be patient and persistent in working towards recovery.

PTSD is a chronic condition, which means that symptoms can persist even with treatment. However, with effective treatment and ongoing management, symptoms can be reduced and quality of life can be improved.

PTSD symptoms can recur after treatment, especially during times of stress or exposure to triggers. It’s important to continue with maintenance therapy and self-care strategies to prevent symptom recurrence.

There are several alternative treatments that have shown positive results in treating PTSD, including HRT (hormone replacement therapy), nutrition, exercise, supplementation, and meditation & mindfulness activites. While these treatments may not be effective for everyone, they can be a helpful addition to a comprehensive treatment plan. Please ask our staff about the Brain Well program for treating PTSD.

This will vary depending on your individual needs treatment plan.


Typically, you will see your psychiatrist/med manager once a month and your therapist once a week, or as recommended.

The most effective treatment plans for PTSD do include you seeing a psychiatrist and therapist. A psychiatrist or med manager will be the one to decide the best treatment plan for you. A therapist provides talk therapy. They are there to listen and help you find ways to cope.
