Sports and games for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
No randomised controlled trials evaluating sports or games to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD were identified. More research is therefore required before a fair assessment can be made of the effectiveness of these interventions for PTSD.
It has been suggested that participation in sports and games may alleviate symptoms of PTSD. This review assesses the effectiveness of sports and games in alleviating or diminishing the symptoms of PTSD, when compared to usual care or other interventions.
