TMS Therapy for Depression
Ups and downs are a part of life, and feeling sad during low moments is completely normal. For some of us, however, sadness just doesn’t seem to end and may turn into depression. Depression is one of the many mood disorders that can hamper your daily life. Depression, or major depressive disorder, is a common and serious illness that alters the way you feel, think, and act. Most people suffering from depression feel constant sadness, lack interest in their daily life, and don’t feel like enjoying the activities around them.
In today’s advancing world, we have developed many therapeutic strategies for the treatment of depression. One of the FDA’s recently approved treatments for depression is transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy. This new therapy is used primarily for patients with refractory depression, i.e., not responding to traditional therapy. Luckily, it is showing promising results for patients.
TMS therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate certain areas or neurons of your brain. This localized stimulation has been shown to improve the symptoms of many patients and sometimes completely resolve depression. During the procedure, an electromagnetic coil is placed near your forehead and delivers magnetic pulses to various areas of your brain. It is a totally painless procedure and aims to rejuvenate some inactive electrical connections of your brain. Successful therapy will make you feel better than ever.
Neuro Behavioral Center is one of the pioneers in providing this advanced therapy to our patients. Our highly skilled health professionals are always striving to improve patient health. Our team will first assess you completely, run several scans, and test to make sure that you are the right candidate for TMS therapy. If you have treatment-resistant depression (TRD), you may be the right candidate and can benefit from TMS therapy.

Personalizing the therapy according to your anatomy will not only lead you to a cure but will also speed up the process. During TMS therapy, using other prescribed medications has been shown to provide better results.
