ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disability arising from problems with nerve communication and activity in the brain. The affected brain areas are responsible for maintaining attention and regulating emotions and behaviors, leading to ADHD’s core challenges of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
The symptoms caused by ADHD depend on which of the three types you have:
Inattentive ADHD causes a range of symptoms, including:
Many people with inattentive ADHD tend to daydream when they should be paying attention at school or work.
The symptoms caused by hyperactive-impulsive ADHD include:
Hyperactivity in adults may cause frustration, irritation, and nervousness instead of fidgeting.
Combined ADHD means you have some symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
The traditional treatment for ADHD includes stimulant medications and behavioral therapies. While therapists teach important skills and techniques for overcoming ADHD challenges, medications often cause side effects.
ADHD medications have another drawback: As soon as you or your child stop them, your symptoms return.
The Reign-Bow Treatment Center providers offer a safe, pain-free alternative: a treatment called Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRTsm).
MeRT uses gentle magnetic pulses to treat the dysfunctional brain nerves responsible for ADHD. The process includes:
A qEEG shows your brainwaves, revealing the precise brain area where nerves are underperforming. Your provider uses this information to precisely plan your treatment.
An EKG reveals your heart activity. Your provider uses this information to monitor the synchronicity between your heartbeat and brain waves.
During rTMS, your provider sends mild magnetic pulses directly into the targeted brain area. The pulses stimulate nerve activity, improving nerve pathways and boosting neurotransmitters (brain chemicals nerves use to communicate).
With a series of MeRT treatments, brain activity improves, which also leads to positive changes in ADHD symptoms.
