Can extreme sports and adrenaline help veterans with PTSD?
from Military Times Rebootcamp
Brandon Webb was in a bad place in 2010. A severe case of back pain sent the former Navy SEAL to a VA hospital. After an MRI, he was told he should consider surgery and was prescribed what he felt were an excessive number of opioids. That's when a neurosurgeon friend recommended a workout regimen of yoga and swimming. It worked, and he never needed to get the surgery. Now, Webb is a believer in the healing powers of exercise and regularly participates in adrenaline-inducing activities, like skiing, skydiving and flying stunt planes.
