Resetting your Mind from Anxiety

Anxiety disorders form a category of mental health diagnoses that lead to extreme worry, fear, and nervousness. If you are experiencing inconsistent levels of anxiety, it is advised to visit MindSet. MindSet is a San Diego anxiety center that uses a safe procedure known as personalized repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (PrTMS) to cure the interrupted brainwaves that are causing obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety. When you feel nervous the brain reacts by producing neurotransmitters and hormones that stimulate the body to deal with the supposed risk. After the threat is over and worry goes away, the hormones return to normal.

Patients with OCD also have a coexisting anxiety condition as they have obsessions which are monotonous and unnecessary feelings and opinions that they can’t control. These obsessions cause severe anxiety that obliges patients to do something to relieve anxiety. Using PrTMS to alter brain waves can help relieve OCD signs. Transcranial magnetic stimulation is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder. TMS incites action in neurons using a gadget that directs magnetic pulses into the brain that restore the normal brainwave activity. The device is placed near the head where it is well-positioned to ensure the suitable area of the brain is directed.

 PrTMS uses TMS to heal anxiety and OCD by improving the process by modifying therapy to meet the brain’s brainwave pattern. The team at MindSet developed three steps to enhance PrTMS results. First, they use an electroencephalogram (EEG) to record a precise image of the brainwave activity. Secondly, the patients fill out a questionnaire that pinpoints symptoms enabling the team to target the accurate brain areas related to the patient’s problems. Lastly, the EEG data and symptoms recorded are assessed by PeakLogic Software which generates the information needed to create a personalized PrTMS therapy procedure.

 This treatment is made up of five sessions for 6-8 weeks that take nearly 30 minutes, and patients can get back to daily routines when they are done. Patients may also have supplementary electroencephalograms to gauge the progress and perfect the PrTMS treatment. This process helps the team at MindSet accomplish ideal results by using the lowermost TMS concentration. Patients may observe improvement differently, some may notice within a few days. Others experience recovery within several weeks after the personalized repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment.

The team of psychiatrists and neuroscientists also provide a remedy to conditions such as:

  •       ADHD- a neural disorder that affects the brain systems accountable for self-regulation and decision-making.
  •       Post-traumatic stress disorder develops after dangerous events such as military duty, gun violence, physical or sexual attacks, natural disasters, and severe accidents.
  •       Depression
  •       Sleep disorders
  •       Concussion
  •       Autism

Besides, the form of treatment used for anxiety is the same used for the conditions listed above. PrTMS helps when the symptoms don’t react to the usual treatments. If you are a patient with any of the conditions listed and would like a safe and effective treatment, schedule an appointment by calling the office or booking online.
