According to the World Health Organization, the coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak also affected the mental health of millions of people. Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said, “As the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic continues, an emotional and psychological pandemic is rapidly following it. The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic triggered another crisis within the crisis - the crisis of psychological problems. According to the World Health Organization, the Covid-19 outbreak caused by the corona virus affected the mental health of millions of people with intense anxiety and fear. "
Dr. Büküşoğlu continued his words as follows; Scientific studies show that you are now eight times more likely to feel serious psychological distress. Concern due to the corona virus epidemic, quarantine conditions and social isolation can also bring psychological problems. Especially for those suffering from anxiety disorders, it can be very difficult to cope with intense anxiety and depression during this period. In contrast, new research shows that only 50 percent of patients respond to the first antidepressant they tried. "TMS Treatment stands out as an effective, drug-free, scientific and medical treatment in chronic, resistant, persistent depression situations that do not respond to antidepressant drugs."
Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu stated the following on the use of TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) Therapy method, which we have heard frequently recently, in the treatment of depression and panic attack caused by the corona virus epidemic;
“The anxiety caused by the coronavirus pandemic, loneliness, social isolation, quarantine conditions, uncertainty about financial future and work are important factors that trigger psychological problems. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, extremely serious negative emotions are experienced and it has been shown by recent scientific studies that fear of coronavirus as a mental reaction can cause severe anxiety disorders, panic attacks and depression symptoms. Almost one third of our people experienced psychological complaints such as stress and anxiety. Panic attacks, anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are common in this period and can lead to depression. Due to the conditions of the coronavirus epidemic, almost "psychological complaints tsunami" is expected to occur very soon. " said.
So what is TMS Treatment? Which diseases are used in the treatment?
TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) Therapy works by applying magnetic field stimulation to nerve cells in the brain and rearranging their activity. Neurological and psychiatric problems often lead to increased or decreased activity in various parts of the brain. TMS Treatment is applied to brain regions that are thought to be affected by depression, anxiety and other mood disorders. It is a treatment that creates changes in the activity of the relevant brain regions, improves and rearranges them. It is a treatment that is effective by creating a strong but short magnetic field in TMS application, creating changes in the brain activity in the targeted area, improving and rearranging it. It acts by stimulating the electrical conduction of the cells in the targeted area of the brain, activating and rearranging the brain's natural electricity. It acts by activating the natural processes of the brain that are not working adequately. It creates an extremely safe and painless treatment effect by creating a strong but short magnetic field without external electric current. TMS acts by activating the natural processes of the brain that are not functioning adequately. It is an extremely safe treatment that has no serious side effects. During the application, the person does not feel any pain, and it is an application without side effects.
