PTSD Treatment

Treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered by witnessing or experiencing a terrifying event, such as combat, crime, assault, or disaster. More than 3 million Americans suffer from PTSD. The condition may last years, with triggers that bring back memories of the trauma and make it difficult for a person affected to function in day to day life.


PTSD Treatment Options

Traditional treatment for PTSD generally involves a combination of antidepressant or anti-anxiety medications and psychotherapy. For some patients, this treatment can be effective, however, a large percentage of patients are not helped with this traditional approach.

A recent technology, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has shown excellent treatment results for individuals with PTSD, as well as with major depressive disorder and co-occurring PTSD. TMS uses electro/magnetic fields to stimulate neurons and normalize brain chemistry. TMS is a non-invasive treatment method with few side effects. Because TMS sessions do not require sedation and are well-tolerated by patients, patients read or watch TV during their treatment sessions, and with no recovery period, are able to drive and resume normal activities afterwards.
