Depression is a brain illness. It will diminish your neural pathways, distort your thought processes, and leave you feeling as if there is no hope of ever feeling better. You may feel like things will never change. Let us at Hope & Wellness TMS support you in your journey to overcome the debilitating effects of depression. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation can help give you your life back. You are not alone.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive approach to depression treatment that uses a magnetic coil placed near the scalp directed at an area of the brain involved in mood regulation and depression: the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Repeated magnetic pulses delivered by the coil stimulate the nerve cells and reactivate pathways in the brain that have become dormant during depression. TMS was first developed in 1985 by Anthony Barker as a non-invasive tool used to stimulate the cerebral cortex. Since then, it has been shown to be clinically effective in treating major depressive disorder (MDD).
Many individuals with treatment resistant depression have found relief from symptoms, if not full remission with TMS treatment. TMS has been demonstrated to be extremely successful when combined with other treatments, such as drug therapy or psychotherapy. TMS therapy is now covered, either partially or fully, by most insurance companies.
Overall, TMS provides a non-invasive, safe approach to brain stimulation without the systemic side effects of drug therapy.
Our office uses the NeuroStar® TMS system which is FDA cleared to treat major depressive disorder (MDD).
