Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and post-traumatic syndrome: A case report

Description

In the present case study, a patient who had become physically disabled due to a fracture caused by a traffic accident and who subsequently showed signs of gross psychological trauma underwent eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) in the Clinic of Physical Treatment and Rehabilitation Center, Ankara Ministry of Health Education and Research Hospital. Before EMDR, the patient was so resistant to medical treatment that he would allow neither doctor nor physiotherapist to approach him. After two sessions of EMDR, he remembered neither the traumatic event of the traffic accident itself nor the resulting medical treatment. He began to cooperate with doctors and physiotherapists during subsequent care. Weekly follow-up interviews over 6 months revealed a dramatic improvement in well-being, which continued to be observed in two follow-up interviews occurring at 3-month intervals after his discharge from the hospital. The ostensible purpose of EMDR technique is the reorganization of traumatic memory and the provision of a kind of psychic respite for the patient. Indeed, the patient in this study was able to lower his resistance to medical treatment and physical therapy as a direct consequence of EMDR sessions. Our observations with this patient provide the basis of a discussion regarding the efficacy of the EMDR technique.
