Diseases treated with TMSAnxiety disorders
The constant race, fast pace of life, chronic stress, information overload, the breakdown of the traditional family, digitization, and shallow social ties are just some of the reasons our brain stops functioning properly and makes itself felt at some point.
Anxiety is one of the most common psychopathological symptoms. Psychotherapy is the causal treatment for anxiety disorders. Psychiatric treatment is symptomatic and, until recently, was limited to the administration of anti-anxiety medications.
Since 2008, the intensive development of TMS has offered new hope for the anxiolytic effect of this method.
Every psychiatrist who uses TMS in his practice has patients who have even achieved spectacular improvements in reducing anxiety during therapy with classical protocols. In addition, many scientific studies and analyses confirm the positive effect of TMS in the treatment of anxiety - including this analysis published in 2019.
In the treatment of anxiety, both prefrontal areas - right and left - are stimulated separately or in the form of the so-called bilateral stimulation. In our clinic, we use several methods of stimulating anxiety disorders. We select them at the qualifying consultation, depending on the clinical picture.
The most sensitive TMS therapy is generalized (slow flowing) anxiety. On the other hand, we do not obtain satisfactory results in treating panic attacks or phobic anxiety.
What do we treat?
- generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
- anxiety-depressive syndrome, depressive neurosis
