The Link Between Treatment-Resistant Depression and PTSD

PTSD is often characterized by intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and flashbacks to traumatic events and experiences, along with persistent avoidance of reminders, alterations in mood and cognition, and marked changes in arousal and reactivity, including hypervigilance and an exaggerated startle response. It is a condition that hides in plain sight. Many people may not recognize these signs in themselves or others or may feel stigmatized by seeking help. However, recognizing these signs is the first critical step toward healing.

What Is TMS Therapy?

TMS therapy is a leading-edge, FDA-approved treatment designed to target key areas of the brain associated with mood regulation. In TMS therapy, magnetic pulses are gently delivered to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, which can lead to reduced symptoms of depression and PTSD in clients for whom traditional treatments haven’t been effective.

TMS therapy is an innovative and non-invasive approach that can provide lasting relief without the side effects commonly associated with medication. You may be a candidate for this transformative treatment if you have not benefited from traditional therapies or are seeking an alternative to medication.

  • Non-invasiveness – TMS therapy is a non-surgical procedure, meaning clients can receive treatment without the risks associated with invasive procedures.
  • Minimal side effects – The treatment has few side effects, most commonly mild discomfort or headache during or after the session, which typically diminishes over time.
  • Supports a comprehensive approach – TMS therapy can be integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that includes therapy, lifestyle changes, and supportive services.
  • FDA approval – TMS therapy has been approved by the FDA, affirming its use and efficacy for treating PTSD, among other mental health conditions.

By providing personalized and empathetic care, we at New Directions Mental Health ensure that TMS therapy is accessible and tailored to the client’s needs, facilitating a journey toward sustained well-being and mental health recovery.
