Advanced PTSD Treatment Can Help You Move Past The Trauma For Good
A new, non-invasive, drug-free treatment for PTSD is now available at BrainCare Performance Center in Orlando, FL.
PTSD Treatment: “Nothing short of a miracle.”Scot’s PTSD made him think he was going crazy. And people around him thought so, too. They didn’t understand why he’d be okay one minute and out of control the next. They didn’t want to be around him for fear of what he might do. He didn’t blame them—because he didn’t understand it himself. A retired Army Delta Force operator, Scot had been in some terrifying situations. But nothing felt as terrifying to him as not knowing what was wrong with him, or how to fix it. He tried everything, from traditional medicine to psychotherapy to hyperbaric chambers. But nothing made him feel any better. Then Scot heard about the Brain Treatment Center. He figured he had nothing to lose. And just two months after treatment, he felt like he had a whole new brain. “I consider the healing I experienced to be nothing short of a miracle,” he said. PTSD doesn’t just affect those who have served in the military; it can affect anyone. And it can be debilitating. According to the American Psychiatric Association, PTSD affects around 3.5 percent of US adults every year. And an estimated one in 11 people will be diagnosed with PTSD in their lifetime. But there is hope. It’s called MeRT or Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy. It’s non-invasive, drug-free, and lasting. And it’s had some spectacular results when treating PTSD.* * Results are based on active and strict observation of our regimens. Results may vary based on the individual user and are not guaranteed.
The MeRTsm Approach to PTSD TreatmentMeRT, or Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy, combines three procedures:
- Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation(TMS, an FDA cleared therapy),
- Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG), and
- Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG).

How to Find Out More About PTSD Treatment with MeRTMeRT is a relatively new treatment, so you may have many questions as to whether it’s the right treatment for your PTSD. We understand, and we’re here to make it as easy as possible for you to get the information you need. We also know that this is not a light decision to make. Your first step is as simple as a phone consultation with our New Patient Coordinator. You can discuss symptoms and history, ask all the questions you want, and have her explain the treatment in full. This includes all fees and protocols.
MeRT Treatment for PTSD: What to ExpectOnce you decide to take the next step, we then set up two separate appointments. Each of these appointments will last 45 minutes to an hour. After this, we have an assessment period where the actual procedure and monitoring take place.
EEG TestingOn your first appointment, we perform the qEEG and ECG/EKG. These tests are simple and painless and done right in our office. For the EEG, we place a cap on your head to measure the electrical activity in your brain. This will map out any areas which are not performing as they should. Additionally, in the EKG, we attach electrodes to your chest to record your heart’s electrical signals. Once we perform the tests, our team will carefully analyze the results. Based on this analysis, we develop a treatment plan customized to your specific condition and schedule your assessment period of treatment.
ConsultationYour second appointment, after your qEEG/EKG, is a one-on-one consultation. You can do this either in person or virtually from the comfort of your home. We will discuss your test results and treatment protocols, answer any questions you may have, and let you know more about what to expect during your assessment period.
Assessment PeriodIn this step, we will perform a short period of treatment, followed by a new EEG to see how you’re responding to the treatment. We determine progress based on the new EEG results compared to the initial one done, and we look at symptom improvements. If there is a positive response to treatment during the assessment period, you will have likely noticed some improvements starting to take place. At that point, we will schedule additional MeRT treatment in two-week intervals. At the end of every two weeks, we will perform a qEEG/EKG to monitor your progress; you will have a consultation to confirm that changes are still showing on the testing. Most conditions treated with MeRT provide noticeable and long-lasting results after four to eight weeks of treatment; however, each patient is different, and results may vary.
