Shaking for Relief: Reducing Anxiety in Alcohol Withdrawal
Abstract
Nearly 15 million people suffer from Alcohol Use Disorder and many are unable to overcome correlated withdrawal symptoms. We looked at one potential treatment for anxiety-related withdrawal symptoms. In rats going through alcohol withdrawal, vibration stimulation of the spine eliminated symptoms of anxiety and returned the rat to normal behavior.
