New technology helps vets overcome PTSD

Dr. Mark d. Wiederhold, President of the Virtual Reality Medical Center and Dennis Wood, retired Navy Captain, PHD were on Good Morning San Diego talking about a new technology that helps returning vets or people who have experienced PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) to over come their anxiety and adjust to a normal life.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a type of anxiety disorder. It can occur after you've seen or experienced a traumatic event that involved the threat of injury or death. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) may occur soon after a major trauma, or it can be delayed for more than 6 months after the event. When it occurs soon after the trauma, it usually gets better after 3 months. However, some people have a longer-term form of PTSD, which can last for many years.
