A traumatic event can have lasting effects on a person’s mental health. While some people will experience short term issues adapting to life after trauma, others will develop longer term symptoms that may be a sign of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. Common triggers for PTSD are accidents, assaults, military combat, natural disasters, or loss. However, any event that is dangerous or terrifying can trigger PTSD symptoms. Symptoms include re-experiencing aspects of the event through flashbacks, nightmares, or bad dreams, avoiding places, objects or people that remind one of the traumatic event, difficulty recalling the event, feelings of numbness or guilt, depressed or anxious mood, angry outbursts, and hypervigilance. Traditional treatment includes the combination of medications and therapy. More recent data has shown promise that TMS can be helpful in the treatment of PTSD, as well. We offer a variety of treatment options in order to achieve results for our patients.
