What Causes
Anxiety Disorder/Panic Attacks?

There are many factors that can cause anxiety, including one or a combination of these circumstances:

Group -4.png

Brain Chemistry

Imbalances in neurotransmitters can contribute to anxiety. For example, low levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with mood regulation, may be linked to anxiety disorders.

Environmental Factors

Stressful life events, trauma, abuse, or significant changes in life circumstances can trigger anxiety. Chronic stressors, such as financial difficulties or relationship problems, may also contribute.

Genetics or family history

There is evidence that suggests a genetic predisposition to anxiety disorders. If someone in your family has had an anxiety disorder, you may be at a higher risk.

Hormonal Changes

Hormonal fluctuations, particularly in women, such as those related to the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, or menopause, can influence anxiety levels.

Substance Abuse

The use of drugs or alcohol can exacerbate or contribute to anxiety disorders. Substance abuse can both be a cause and a consequence of anxiety.

Lifestyle Changes

  • Regular Exercise: Physical activity can help reduce anxiety by promoting the release of endorphins, the body's natural mood lifters.

  • Healthy Diet: A balanced diet rich in nutrients can positively influence mood and overall well-being.

  • Adequate Sleep: Establishing good sleep hygiene and getting enough rest is crucial for managing anxiety.

Treatment for
Anxiety Disorders

Treatment for Anxiety Disorders Can Include:

Therapy

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is a widely used therapeutic approach that focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors contributing to anxiety.

  • Exposure Therapy: This technique involves gradually facing and overcoming fears or anxiety-inducing situations to reduce sensitivity and fear.

  • Mindfulness-Based Therapies: Practices like mindfulness meditation and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) can help individuals become more aware of their thoughts and feelings, reducing anxiety.

Medications

  • Antidepressants: Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are commonly prescribed to treat anxiety disorders. Benzodiazepines may be used in certain situations, but they are generally recommended for short-term use due to the risk of dependence.

  • Buspirone: An anti-anxiety medication that affects serotonin and dopamine receptors.

  • Beta-blockers: These medications may be used to manage physical symptoms of anxiety, such as rapid heartbeat and trembling.

Anxiety Disorders FAQs

  • What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?
    Transcranial magnetic stimulation, often referred to as TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when antidepressant medications haven’t been effective, have ceased working, or as an alternative to medication.
  • How does TMS work?
    TMS involves delivering magnetic pulses to specific parts of the brain.
  • How long is TMS treatment?
    A typical initial course of treatment is about 19-37 minutes daily over 4-6 weeks.
  • Is TMS Therapy covered by my insurance?
    A vast majority of commercial and Medicare plans have recognized the effectiveness of treating depression with TMS Therapy and now cover TMS as part of their plans.
  • Is TMS Therapy a good alternative for patients who cannot tolerate the side effects of antidepressant medications?
    TMS does not circulate in the blood throughout the body, so it does not have side effects like weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, sedation, etc. The most common side effects reported during clinical trials were headache and scalp discomfort —generally mild to moderate—occurring less frequently after the first week of treatment
  • Is TMS Therapy like other alternative therapies that use magnets to treat some illnesses?
    No. TMS Therapy involves a unique method of using pulsed magnetic fields for a therapeutic benefit. The intensity of the magnetic field is similar to that of an MRI. These techniques differ radically from the popular use of low intensity, static magnetic fields. Those products deliver weak and undirected static fields that are not capable of activating brain cells. The activation and stimulation of brain cells is a key part of why TMS is so effective.
  • Does it hurt?
    While there may be some minor discomfort at the treatment site (where the device touches your head), it generally subsides within the first week of treatment. There is no sedation, or impact on your alertness. You can read, watch TV, or talk with your treatment coordinator during your session, and you can drive home immediately after treatment.
