Our multiple offices welcome you to book an appointment online or contact us to learn more about TMS treatment.
What Causes ADHD in Patients
ADHD is a neurological disorder caused by a neurotransmitter imbalance in certain brain areas controlling executive function and self-regulation. As a result, this brain dysfunction makes staying organized, multitasking, solving problems, and regulating your behaviors and emotions difficult. ADHD’s resulting challenges are intense and cause severe problems that negatively impact a person’s work performance and interfere with their personal relationships.
Symptoms You Can Expect to Develop With ADHD
Health care professionals categorize ADHD symptoms like inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Patients with ADHD may be challenged by all three categories or just one. Executive function deficits can negatively affect your working memory. A working memory lets you hold several pieces of information in your brain long enough to use them. It is necessary to perform tasks like planning your next step, doing calculations, and associating one activity with another. You might exhibit any of the following traits if you have ADHD:
- Have Trouble Paying Attention
- Make Careless Mistakes
- Fail to Pay Attention to Details
- Have a Hard Time Organizing Tasks
- Find It Hard to Relax
- Frequently Lose Important Items
- Start but Never Finish Projects
- Not Follow Through on Instructions
- Forget Daily Tasks or Miss Deadlines
How We Treat ADHD in the DFW Metroplex
The first line of treatment for many patients with ADHD is medication. You can improve your attention and ignore distractions with stimulant medications, boosting your brain chemicals essential for attention and thinking. TMS therapy at Texas Mind Science also effectively boosts your brain chemicals without resorting to medication. Instead, this innovative treatment option stimulates areas in your brain affected by ADHD, increases your brain chemicals, and improves your symptoms using magnetic pulses.
CloudTMS™ Therapy for ADHD: What to Expect
Texas Mind Science’s providers place the TMS coil against your head while you relax in a chair. We position this coil in the proper location to send magnetic pulses into your brain’s targeted area. You sit in the treatment chair while we use the CloudTMS™ machine to deliver magnetic pulses, during which you might feel a slight tapping sensation or hear clicking with each pulse. Otherwise, this painless treatment transmits pulses through your skull to stimulate your brain safely. Most patients go through four to six weeks of sessions, with five sessions each week. You can drive yourself home after each session and resume your daily routine.
