Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an intense anxiety reaction triggered by exposure to a life-threatening situation. This response often manifests as a proclivity to avoid places or events that could serve as reminders of the traumatic experience. This condition can significantly impede patients’ quality of life for an extended period, affecting their ability to function normally in day-to-day activities.

Deep TMS treatment utilizes magnetic pulses generated by Capote TMS LLC patented H1 Coil to stimulate neurons in areas of the brain associated with anxious depression, including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) – particularly the left side.

Multiple peer-reviewed clinical studies have found Deep TMS to be a highly effective treatment in treating anxiety comorbid with depression. In a multicenter, double-blind controlled study, Deep TMS showed significant reductions in anxiety symptoms through the acute course of TMS treatments and retained improvement through 16 weeks.

As a noninvasive procedure, Deep TMS is a well-tolerated treatment that does not cause any adverse or long-lasting side effects. It does not require a significant recovery period, and the 20-min treatment can easily be integrated into each patient’s day-to-day schedule.

Conventional Treatments

Treatment with antidepressant medication can alleviate the depressive and anxiety symptoms associated with the disorder but falls short in addressing other impairing symptoms that impact patients’ daily functioning. Cognitive-behavioral treatments, including exposure to traumatic memories and various psychotherapeutic approaches, have shown partial success in some individuals. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies indicate that severe traumatic events can induce significant changes in neural activity patterns across different brain areas.

One therapeutic approach for treating PTSD involves psychotherapy, where patients revisit traumatic events in the hope that directly confronting them will contribute to healing. Support groups are also utilized in certain cases. Additionally, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medications like Prozac and Effexor are available. Another emerging treatment is eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), which, though controversial, combines rapid eye movements with a reconstruction of the traumatic event. While proven effective in some instances, EMDR requires individual tailoring, is intensive and costly, and has a notable dropout rate.
