Anxiety disorders are mental illnesses that can quickly become debilitating to their hosts. Not only this, but when it comes to the top-recognized co-occuring mental illnesses that exist alongside addictions, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and more, professionals in the psychiatric industry have found that anxiety disorders rear their ugly heads constantly.
Typical treatment “success recipes” prescribed for anxiety disorders include therapy (such as talk therapy, or CBT), psychotropic medications (including SSRIs), and other experiential activities. However, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (or “TMS” for short) has proven to be extremely useful when it comes to relieving individuals from the suffering that anxiety disorders can inevitably cause. Believe it or not, many people do not know about this relatively new technology when seeking treatment for their mental illness. While this treatment has been around for over a decade, it has only recently begun gaining momentum and recognition in mainstream depression and anxiety treatment plans.
