TMS Therapy Providers located in San Diego, CA

The latest statistics report that 50-70 million adults have chronic sleep disorders and nearly 40% of all adults fall asleep unintentionally during the day at least once a month, a problem strongly associated with sleep disorders. Our team at MindSet has a unique and highly effective approach to treating sleep disorders called personalized repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (PrTMS®), which corrects the unusual brain activity associated with sleep disorders. To learn if PrTMS® is a possible treatment option, call our office in San Diego, California, or request an appointment online.

Sleep Disorders Q & A

What health concerns are associated with sleep disorders?

Sleep disorders represent a serious problem because sleep deprivation affects cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and physical health. Being sleep deprived has a negative impact on memory and makes it hard to make decisions, concentrate, and control emotions.

Lack of sleep is associated with many health problems. It increases the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and kidney disease. Sleep affects hunger hormones and insulin. As a result, sleep deficiency leads to weight gain and increases the chance of developing diabetes.

Finally, it goes without saying that sleep deficiency affects energy level throughout the day. Ongoing fatigue impacts performance at work or school and raises the risk of falling asleep behind the wheel.

What is PrTMS?

PrTMS uses TMS to treat sleep disorders but significantly improves on the procedure by personalizing therapy to meet the brain’s unique brainwave pattern. Our team at MindSet has developed three steps to optimize PrTMS results.

For the first step, we map brainwave activity using an electroencephalogram (EEG). Using our AI program, we can produce an accurate image of the brain’s electrical activity, allowing us to identify brain arrhythmias.

For the second step, patients complete a questionnaire that identifies symptoms, giving our team a comprehensive analysis of mental health and enabling us to target the precise brain areas that are associated with a patient’s particular challenges.

Finally, the EEG data and self-reported symptoms are evaluated by our innovative AI software. This advanced program produces the information needed to develop a customized PrTMS therapy protocol for each unique brain mapping.

What should I expect during PrTMS treatment?

Your treatment will consist of five sessions every week for 6-8 weeks. The sessions only take about 30 minutes, and when they’re over, patients can get back to normal daily activities.

Throughout treatment, patients have additional EEGs to evaluate progress and refine the PrTMS therapy. This ongoing evaluation gives our team at MindSet the ability to use the lowest possible TMS intensity to achieve optimal results. 

Most patients at MindSet experience an improvement in their sleep disorder symptoms within several weeks of when their PrTMS treatments begin. Though not as common, patients may notice results within a few days.

If you or someone you know struggles with their sleep, especially if the symptoms don’t respond to conventional treatments, PrTMS can help. To request an appointment, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
