How Neuromodulation Helps With Mental Health Symptoms

When used in combination with other evidence-based treatments, neuromodulation can help children and adults to have:

 

  • Enhanced focus and attention. Neuromodulation has proven effective in improving concentration and reducing distractibility in individuals with ADHD.
  • Behavioral modification. This therapy helps manage and mitigate issues such as impulsiveness and aggression.
  • Emotional stability. By modulating brain activity, neuromodulation aids in better emotional regulation, helping to alleviate mood swings and emotional distress.
  • Improved sleep patterns. Regularizing neural activity through neuromodulation can significantly enhance sleep quality, which is crucial for overall mental health.
  • Cognitive enhancement. Patients often experience improved cognitive function, which facilitates easier learning and task execution.
  • Stress reduction. Neuromodulation techniques can modulate the brain’s response to stress, helping to decrease anxiety levels and enhance relaxation.

How Neuromodulation Works at ResWell

If you or your child may benefit from neuromodulation, we can prescribe an external trigeminal nerve stimulation (eTNS) device – the Monarch device:

  • The non-invasive device connects to a disposable patch placed on your child’s forehead at bedtime. 
  • When turned on, it sends low stimulating pulses to the trigeminal nerve through the patch overnight. 
  • This treatment influences electrical activity in the brain, helping to reduce mental health symptoms and improve mood.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is neuromodulation?

Neuromodulation is a therapeutic technique that involves the regulation of nerve activity through the targeted application of electrical stimulation or pharmaceutical agents to specific neurological sites. This approach is used to alter nerve impulses, thereby influencing areas of the brain associated with various mental health disorders. Neuromodulation can be an effective treatment for conditions where other methods may not have achieved optimal outcomes.

Is neuromodulation safe?

Yes, neuromodulation is considered safe when performed under the guidance of trained medical professionals. It has been rigorously tested in clinical trials and is used widely in medical settings. The side effects are typically minimal and may include temporary discomfort at the site of stimulation. ResWell adheres to strict protocols to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients during neuromodulation treatments.

Can I perform neuromodulation at home?

Certain neuromodulation devices, such as the eTNS system used at ResWell, are designed for home use and can be safely operated by patients or family members after proper instruction. These devices are typically used as part of a broader treatment plan and under the ongoing supervision of a healthcare provider to ensure optimal safety and effectiveness.

What does the research say about neuromodulation?

The efficacy of neuromodulation in treating various psychiatric and neurological conditions is well-supported by research. Numerous studies have shown significant improvements in symptoms for conditions like ADHD, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Researchers continue to explore the potential of neuromodulation in enhancing cognitive function and treating other mental health issues.
