injection PTSD

I recently came across an article about a Chicago doctor who claims to be able to cure PTSD through an injection ā€” a procedure referred to as stellate-ganglion block (SGB). After poking around a little, I discovered that this is old news. Back in December, 2011, Katie Drummond published an excellent article about it in Wired magazine entitled “Navy Gives Neck Injections A Shot At Curing PTSD.”

Granted, this is off-topic on a bipolar blog, but I think any research that points to a cure for a mental illness is worth noting.
