TMS Anxiety Treatment
General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Anxiety means continuous and excessive worry about every day or long term events. The stressful thoughts are unable to be controlled by a person and they, in turn, control the person leading to anxiety. Anxiety is part of our lives, but not all the time. Any person will feel anxious from time to time but that feeling goes away. That feeling of unconsciousness becomes anxiety when it becomes part of life and won’t go away. This leads to poor work and personal-life performance.
The feeling of unease, worry or fear constitute the general definition of anxiety. It could be severe or it could be mild.
TMS anxiety treatment
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive and safe way to treat anxiety and depression. In this, powerful magnetic rays are used to target areas of the brain which are known to be involved in anxiety and depression. People who undergo TMS have shown to report higher energy levels, better mood and less anxiety. TMS is usually recommended for treatment-resistant anxiety.
Who gets anxiety
NHS figures show that GAD is a common condition, estimated to affect up to 5% of the UK population.
Slightly more women are affected than men, and the condition is more common in people from the ages of 35 to 59.
