Post-Tramatic Stress Disorder [PTSD]
TMS has proved to be 2-3 times more effective in resolving PTSD than anti-depressant medications and/or talk therapy.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health disorder that is caused and triggered by a terrifying event in one’s life, which typically involves actual or threatened death, serious injury or sexual violation. The event can be either actually experienced only witnessed.
Most Common Traumatic Events Causing PTSD
- Sexual violence
- Childhood physical abuse
- Combat exposure
- Physical assault
- Being threatened with a weapon
- An accident
Many other traumatic events can also cause PTSD, such as fire, natural disaster, mugging, robbery, plane crash, torture, kidnapping, life-threatening medical diagnosis, terrorist attack, and other extreme or life-threatening events.
PTSD is not only disruptive to one’s daily living, but it can also increase the risk of other mental health disorders, such as:
- Depression and anxiety
- Substance Abuse
- Eating disorders
- Suicidal Ideation
Symptoms of PTSD may include:
Uncontrollable thoughts about the event
Symptoms of Post-traumatic stress disorder may start immediately after the causal event, or they may not appear, until years after the event.
Intensity of PTSD Symptoms
The intensity of PTSD symptoms can vary over time, but they are often intensified by general stress and/or reminders of the event (noises; news; people, etc).
