TMS Therapy for PTSD

If you’ve survived a traumatic experience, you may still be dealing with the consequences years later. Post-traumatic stress disorder affects an estimated 7-8 percent of Americans, many of whom are veterans who put their lives on the line for our safety.

What is PTSD?

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) happens after someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event like war, natural disaster, a serious accident, or violence. It’s diagnosed after a person has flashbacks of the event, emotional numbness, and/or trouble sleeping and concentrating for more than a month after the incident.

Trauma causes a change in brain pattern, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses magnetic pulses to shift the brain back to healthy patterns. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission from PTSD possible.
