Main ADHD symptoms: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity

ADHD, the abbreviation for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a neurological-psychiatric disorder that is often diagnosed in children, but can also affect adolescents and adults. It is estimated that the prevalence rate worldwide is around 5 to 7 percent in children and 2 to 5 percent in adults, although the figures vary depending on the country, diagnostic criteria and study methods. ADHD is characterized by various symptoms that fall into three main categories: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. The course of ADHD can change over time, with some symptoms weakening or changing in adulthood. The causes of ADHD are still not fully understood, but it is assumed that genetic factors play a major role. Neurological and environmental aspects could also be involved. The treatment of ADHD to date usually involves a combination of behavioral therapy and medication, particularly stimulants or non-stimulant medication. Parents and teachers play an important role in supporting and treating children with ADHD. For adults, additional measures such as organizational strategies, coaching and therapy should help to manage symptoms and structure everyday life. However, non-invasive brain stimulation methods (NIBS) are also increasingly being used for ADHD and Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS) has already proven in clinical studies that shock wave treatment opens up new avenues in therapy (see for example: TPS can also be used for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) ).

TPS Treatment for ADHD: Goals and possibilities of TPS therapy

In studies to date, significant intervention effects have been found for all ADHD symptoms (SNAP-IV and ADHD RS-IV), in executive functions (reaction time in the Stroop test, digit span (OS) – forward) and in the clinical global impression (CGI) in relation to the severity of the disorder, improvement in symptoms and in the overall score. In clinics and practices, ADHD patients are treated by neurologists and psychiatrists in individual cases in the area of “off-label” therapy with Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS). Initial casuistics show the positive effect of TPS in adults in line with the studies.
