MADISON (WKOW) -- Veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan are being invited to participate in a Wisconsin study designed to help soldiers adjust to life after combat.
The study is being conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Researchers there say veterans who return from a war zone may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, but not all respond to conventional treatment.
Scientists hope to develop new strategies for treating PTSD. The programs may involve group discussions, breathing exercises, meditation and gentle stretching.
A university news release says these sorts of programs are cost-effective and free of side effects, and veterans can practice the techniques on their own.
Veterans who are interested can call 608-263-0803. Those who participate could be paid up to $380 and reimbursed for gas.
