IN CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY
FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS.
APN Concussion & Depression Center
The APN Concussion and Depression Center offers two cutting-edge technologies which have produced a plethora of scientific trials and studies suggesting potential benefits for a variety of conditions.
- BrainsWay Deep TMS is a leading brand of deep transcranial magnetic stimulation – a non-invasive, non-medication, FDA-approved treatment for depression and OCD in patients who have not responded well to antidepressants.
- A deep TMS treatment session involves 20 minutes of seated rest while wearing a patented helmet that generates a magnetic field targeting certain parts of the brain. Little to no discomfort is involved, and no downtime is needed.
- Clinical trials are currently ongoing to test the efficacy of deep TMS for smoking cessation, temporal lobe epilepsy treatment, anorexia nervosa treatment, Alzheimer’s treatment, neuropathic pain treatment, and stroke rehabilitation.
- Some early stage research suggests that deep TMS may be helpful in the management or treatment of conditions including addiction, ADHD, chronic pain, body dysmorphic disorder, PTSD, bipolar depression, and more.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- All Points North Lodge is proud to offer in-house Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). HBOT works by pairing pure oxygen with significantly increased ambient air pressure. This combination dramatically increases the amount of oxygen available in the client’s body. Increased oxygen allows improved oxygen delivery to any body tissues which have been deprived. This promotes the growth of new blood vessels and enables the body’s defense system to better kill harmful bacteria.
- HBOT is FDA-approved for a variety of conditions from low blood flow to some brain and sinus infections to skin grafts. The additional oxygen delivered to tissues can fight infection and promote quicker healing.
- Some preliminary studies suggest potential benefit in the treatment of sports-related injuries, depression, strokes, migraines, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and more. However, this research is still ongoing.
