PTSD and physical symptoms

I have had counselling for ptsd and it helped a lot with psychological symptoms like flashbacks and panic attacks. I still suffer from physical symptoms though, mostly muscle pain caused by the tension in my body. Has anybody experienced this and treated it successfully?

I don't have personal experience of PTSD but a friend has and he is evangelical about somatic experiencing, you might want to check it out..

Look into EMDR as well.

Thank you limon.
I read about somatic experiencing and it looks quite good but there are no qualified practitioners in my area. Hopefully I'll be able to find someone who can do EMDR.
