More than 40 million adults in the U.S. are impacted by anxiety disorders every year. Out of this staggering number, slightly less than 40 percent of those suffering, receive treatment.
It’s not uncommon for an individual with anxiety to suffer from a compound disorder such as depression. The root cause of anxiety stems from a set of risk factors that includes brain chemistry, genetics, personality, and life circumstances.
At Elements Massage Gilbert, we have experience in assisting clients with creating anxiety management strategies. First off, there are many different types of anxiety but these are the ones that we see most often:
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
GAD impacts approximately 6.8 million adult Americans each year and is much more likely to affect women.
- Panic Disorder (PD)
PD is the next largest disorder impacting approximately 6 million adults. Again, it has a tendency to impact women more than men.
- Social Anxiety Disorder (SD)
A debilitating form of anxiety that prevents people from doing many of the things they love, SD affects 15 million adults.
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Typically, this form of anxiety sets in between the ages of 14-19. A recorded 2.2 million adults suffer from this disorder.
