The Effects of Trauma on the Body

The Effects of Trauma on the Body

Trauma can stem from a variety of places, making it extremely difficult to cope with alone. Trauma can manifest in several different ways, causing it to have serious short-term and long-lasting effects on the body. Healing from trauma can take time. At Avalon Malibu, we hope to help you feel comfortable during your time in treatment. There are several proven beneficial therapies to help treat the negative effects trauma can have on the body that we offer.

What Is Trauma?

Trauma can occur from a single event or series of events. Traumatic experiences are experiences that cause distress. For example, a car crash can be a traumatic event. Other examples of trauma include:

  • Abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, or verbal)
  • Combat
  • Violence
  • Natural disasters
  • Witnessing a traumatic event

It’s important to know that the effects of trauma can occur as the result of any traumatic event or series of events. The effects of trauma can also vary from person to person. While some individuals may experience symptoms of depression from their trauma, others could experience symptoms such as physical pain throughout the body.

There is no shame in admitting that you have been through something traumatic. Sometimes trauma can manifest in ways that can be hard to recognize as being a response to the trauma. For example, generalized anxiety or irritability can occur in some individuals. Understanding and accepting that what you went through was traumatic is a significant first step. Avalon Malibu is a wonderful place to be to receive treatment for the effects of trauma.

Anyone can experience trauma, and everyone may experience it differently. The effects of trauma can feel debilitating to some. With that in mind, our residential mental health treatment facility, The Grand House, may be right for you. The Grand Hose is a home-like environment that can help bring a sense of comfortability while addressing traumatic events. We want to bring our clients hope and give them potential growth opportunities while treating trauma.

Trauma and the Body

Trauma can affect an individual’s body in a variety of ways. Some examples of potential initial effects on the body could include:

  • Exhaustion
  • Increased depression
  • Increased anxiety
  • Abnormal agitation

Other examples of trauma affecting the body could include symptoms like panic attacks or depression. These types of symptoms can cause the body to tire easily as well as cause something like heart palpitations, sweating, or a loss of interest in participating in activities that you once found valuable to your quality of life.

We also know that trauma can have longer-lasting effects on the body, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. At Avalon Malibu, we offer yoga, massage therapy, and pain management to help aid you throughout the process of treating your trauma. The effects of trauma can linger in the body if it goes untreated. We suggest seeking help for any of the effects of trauma. Due to this, we offer multiple types of therapies and treatments to not only treat the effects of trauma but to help empower you as well.

Experiencing trauma can leave you feeling powerless; we want to help eradicate that feeling. We can assist you in doing so with a combination of proven beneficial therapies and treatments.

Treating the Effects of Trauma

Avalon Malibu is equipped to help you if you are suffering from the effects of trauma. We offer a wide variety of therapies proven to help treat trauma. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, and group therapy are just a few examples of what we offer.

EMDR is an example of a very effective trauma treatment. This therapy can be used to address both physical and psychological effects. Any treatment for trauma can be intense; having to address head-on what you went through can be a daunting task. We want to assure you that our clients will benefit from working through the trauma. Our staff includes medical professionals and specialists who are able to effectively assist you in your treatment.

Other types of therapy we utilize include a holistic approach. Our holistic therapy approach means we treat the mind, body, and spirit as we believe they are all connected. In some individuals, we use the aid of medication and therapy to help treat the effects of trauma. Everyone’s experience with trauma can be different, so we find it essential to cater to each person’s specific needs. We offer residential and outpatient treatments for our clients wanting treatment for trauma.

Treating the effects of trauma on the body can take time. We understand that addressing trauma can be a scary idea, but we want to assure you that we are here to help and support you through it.
