Suffering from depression is bad enough. Trying to get through life with anxiety caused by depression can seem almost impossible, but NeuroSpa Therapy Centers can help bring you the hope and healing you deserve.
We take a multi-faceted approach to care that doesn’t just relieve the symptoms of anxiety, but treats the underlying issues at the root of it. Our certified clinicians and doctors will work with you to not only identify those issues, but also to deliver the relief you’ve been looking for through a personalized treatment regimen.
Anxiety is a very common condition affecting 40 million adults in the U.S. according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Anxiety is defined as, “[…] the mind and body’s reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations. It’s the sense of uneasiness, distress, or dread you feel before a significant event.” (anxiety.org) Many people who have experienced depression have also previously suffered from an anxiety disorder, although one does not necessarily cause the other (aada.org).
There are several types of anxiety disorders, ranging from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and more. Although the different anxiety disorders have their own set of symptoms, signs, and triggers, they all impact a patient’s everyday life, and can interfere with everything from job performance to relationships and many other daily routines (nimh.com). It is very possible that these anxiety disorders are induced by diagnosed depression, as the symptoms can overlap.
There is, however, a difference between everyday anxiety and having an anxiety disorder. A patient suffering from an anxiety disorder experiences more pronounced symptoms and is generally more debilitated by their disorder, while someone with everyday anxiety feels these symptoms on a more situational basis. For example, according to anxiety therapists, someone with everyday anxiety will experience anxiety and stress after a triggering event or situation, while someone suffering from anxiety disorder will feel these symptoms at a heightened level for an extended period of time (adaa.org).
While there are various forms of anxiety disorder, there are certain feelings and symptoms that are common with all. According to the Cleveland Clinic, the most common symptoms of anxiety are feelings of panic or fear, problems sleeping, uncontrollable or excessive thoughts and repeated thoughts to traumatic flashbacks.
Other forms of anxiety have symptoms that are key indicators that you may be suffering from a more specific anxiety disorder. Generalized Anxiety Disorder, or GAD, includes irritability, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and feeling restless and wound up. Patients suffering from panic disorder experience physical symptoms including heart palpitations, sweating and trembling that onset very quickly and without any real warning.
Phobia-related anxiety disorder patients suffer from irrational and excessive worry or fear, and often take active steps to avoid a certain phobic trigger. Social anxiety disorder, previously known as social phobia, affects 15 million adults with symptoms like strong fears of social or performative situations (nimh.com).
Don’t let stigma or uncertainty prevent you from finding the care you deserve. Reaching out to a qualified healthcare professional is the only way to know whether your anxiety symptoms are due to an anxiety disorder. Nearly half of those diagnosed by a psychologist with depression are then diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, so it is not uncommon for a patient to experience both.
A study titled, The Neurobiology of Anxiety Disorders: Brain Imaging, Genetics, and Psychoneuroendocrinology, dives deep into how our brain’s misfires can lead to anxiety. According to the study, anxiety symptoms stem from imbalances in the emotional center of the brain, and can be triggered by genetic, situational and environmental factors.
In order to help you get the best personalized anxiety treatment, NeuroSpa Therapy Centers’ certified clinicians will begin by guiding you through a full, insurance-covered evaluation. Different people respond in different ways to anxiety treatment. Some will respond positively to prescription drugs that address their symptoms, while others may experience only their negative side effects.
Our team will put together a comprehensive, personally tailored treatment plan that not only gives you relief from the immediate symptoms of anxiety caused by depression, but one which also addresses the underlying causes to help achieve a complete recovery.
Treating anxiety can include TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), ketamine, nutritional counseling or other therapies, administered individually or in combination with others. Your evaluation will determine what’s best for your specific needs to ensure you’re getting everything you need and nothing you don’t.
TMS is a medication-free, non-invasive treatment for patients with depression-induced anxiety. This FDA-cleared therapy works by stimulating nerve cells in the brain’s mood & emotion-controlling center with targeted magnetic pulses.
TMS has been shown to improve both anxiety and depression symptoms at rates that exceed traditional treatments like CBT or medication, all without systemic side effects or mass disruption to your daily life.
TMS treatment takes just 19 minutes per day, and is administered in the comfort of a relaxing, spa-like environment, with results being felt in just a matter of weeks. NeuroSpa Therapy Centers’ above-average success rates has seen 81% of patients enjoy positive improvement, with 53% of those experiencing full remission.
TMS therapy can be a great treatment alternative for patients with depression-induced anxiety who have not found positive results from medication, CBT or other more traditional treatments. Sometimes, basic counseling services may not be enough to relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression. If you’ve endured prolonged use of medication to treat your anxiety without relief or desired results, TMS in Tampa may be the right anxiety treatment for you. TMS is non-invasive, medication and side effect-free, and often starts showing positive results within weeks.
If you’ve already tried talk therapy, CBT, or prescription medication without success, TMS therapy at NeuroSpa Therapy Centers might be for you. Don’t let uncertainty or financial concerns keep you from finding the depression & anxiety relief you deserve. TMS is proven safe, FDA-cleared covered by all major insurance providers.
Even if you yourself do not suffer from anxiety, or anxiety caused by diagnosed depression, it is important to know how you can support and help someone close to you as they combat this disorder.
