SE isn’t something I have ever heard of until exploring the topic of PTSD. The moment that it really sparked my interest was in episode 3 with Josh. He mentioned how it is common with some combat veterans to develop kyphosis. This is something I do and I can see how years of combat and subconsciously compacting one’s body to protect their vitals could lead to a systemic issue with their posture. That sparked my interest in this topic and I believe Sarah did an amazing job breaking down this topic into a digestible episode that has only encouraged me to look further into SE.
We would really appreciate a share and like on IG, FB, Youtube and Twitter. I am always looking for veterans or first responders who have battled PTSD to share how you have raised the quality of your life to shorten that journey for others. Additionally if you support, provide services for these groups, or have extensive knowledge of benefits available for these groups please reach out. I would love to have a chat and share that knowledge with the community.
