The first step in tackling insomnia is to see whether there’s an underlying cause or trigger. Treating existing medical conditions can reduce the likelihood of insomnia affecting you, and changing your current medications could resolve the problem.
Psychotherapy can be useful in addressing unresolved emotional problems that could be causing insomnia. Some people might also benefit from a course of medication to help them sleep.
In some cases, there’s no obvious underlying cause for insomnia. If you’re struggling to find an answer to your insomnia, Dr. Bishop at Brain Health Center could offer the solution with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
TMS therapy involves using magnetic energy waves to stimulate the areas in the brain that don’t fire normally in people with depression, anxiety, and other conditions. TMS is an entirely noninvasive, safe method of treatment which has been used and researched as an off-label treatment for insomnia.
If you would like to try TMS, call Brain Health Center today, or book your appointment online.
