Car Related Anxiety
Car Related Anxiety means simply that you get anxious in a car after your car accident. This level of hyper-vigilance often can make you more likely to have another car wreck. In one or two sessions, our specialized counselors can teach you cognitive behavioral techniques to get you back driving, or riding as a passenger, without having panic attacks.
Panic Attacks after Car Accidents Are Common
When someone has past trauma a minor accident can trigger serious panic attacks, flashbacks, and even nightmares. Some people have difficulty if they have seen a loved one seriously hurt in an accident; all these need to be correlated during counseling. We give our patients specific training in managing these thoughts.
Car accidents also affect our children. Anxiety from a car accident can cause our children to have nightmares/sleep poorly and, as a result, under-perform in school. Sometimes, children take on the pain of their parents; it gets complicated. Early counseling offers the clearest avenue to successful coping skills for all ages. We give our patients specific training in managing these thoughts.
Meditation Alternative for Managing Anxiety
Meditation can be taught. In general meditation offers the clearest way to change your anxiety in everyday life.
Some use mantras. Some just find a quiet place on a regular basis. Finding meditation coaches can be part of your post MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) care. We find that helping people return to their lives with new tools to deal with stress and anxiety really makes a difference.
