Anxiety conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) affects many Americans every single day. An anxiety condition is caused by a hyperactive amygdala. The amygdala is the part of your brain that helps you process emotions, especially during threatening situations. Your amygdala assists in dictating your body’s fight or flight response, and when your amygdala is hyperactive, your body kicks into excessive worrying that can be disruptive to your everyday activities, and this characterizes an anxiety disorder. There are many types of anxiety treatment for this disorder, and TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) therapy is a revolutionary new way that is changing the way we look at disorders like anxiety, depression, PTSD, and OCD.

What is TMS Therapy and How Can It Help Me?
TMS therapy is a type of treatment that uses magnets to generate an electromagnetic wave, just like an MRI scan does. At Neurosciences Medical Clinic a qualified technician gently places a coil on your head that will deliver an electromagnetic pulse. This pulse will realign the neurons in your brain back to a normal level of activity from the heightened levels present during anxiety, helping to ease your symptoms. When treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and anti-anxiety medications don’t have any effects, TMS therapy may present an anxiety treatment program that can help you. Even if this innovative and promising treatment does not entirely eradicate your anxiety, it can significantly reduce symptoms and allow you to enjoy a higher quality of life. TMS therapy is able to do so without the often unpleasant side effects anxiety medications can cause. Anxiety disorders can be so intense and uncontrollable that it interferes with your relationships, work, and daily life. TMS therapy can help prevent these issues and assist you in better managing your mental states so that you don’t feel as overwhelmed by irrational thoughts.
Treatment For Your Anxiety Disorder
Patients who have received a regular course of TMS treatment sessions to treat their anxiety report reduced general anxiety and a significant decrease in the amount of anxious thoughts that they experience. They also report an improvement in anxiety symptoms such as sleep disturbances, restlessness, irritability, shortness of breath, dizziness, muscle tension, blurred vision, concentration problem, excessive sweating, and others. The amount of time it can take for a patient undergoing TMS treatment for their anxiety to see results depends on a range of individual factors, including the severity of your symptoms and the amount of time you’ve been affected by anxiety. Many patients experience decreased symptoms within a couple of weeks, and others experience positive effect even sooner than that.
