The Use of Yoga, Meditation, Mantram, and Mindfulness to Enhance Coping in Veterans with PTSD

Rachael Fiore, Rhonda Nelson, Eric Tosti

Abstract


Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is commonly diagnosed in veterans and can include a variety of debilitating symptoms including depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, anger, nightmares, flashbacks, and chronic pain. These symptoms can negatively impact many aspects of an individual's life and frequently result in decreased coping and overall quality of life. Recently, interventions using yoga, meditation, mantram, and mindfulness have been explored as avenues for improving symptoms of PTSD in this population.
