TMS is a depression treatment that is drug-free and non-invasive. It works by stimulating the prefrontal cortex of your brain—where mood is regulated—with a magnetic field.
In a TMS therapy session at Ormond Beach, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head and turns the device on to deliver magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex. This helps that region of your brain regulate your mood more effectively.
As our own patient testimonials show, TMS therapy is an effective depression treatment.
Three important things distinguish TMS therapy from other depression treatments:
Some people don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medications, or they can’t tolerate the side effects of these medications. Some people simply prefer not to take drugs. TMS therapy is a viable drug-free alternative.
Some depression treatments involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, often requiring anesthesia. These include electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), deep brain stimulation, and vagus nerve stimulation.
Unlike these treatments, TMS therapy is non-invasive. It doesn’t involve surgery or require anesthesia to effectively treat depression.
TMS therapy can cause temporary discomfort at or near the treatment site during a session. This usually subsides after the first week of treatment. Less than 5% of TMS patients discontinue TMS therapy due to side effects.
Most people begin to feel positive results within two to three weeks of starting TMS therapy. For some, these good changes may start even sooner!
The effects of TMS therapy are long-term, but you may need booster treatments to stay free from depression. Booster treatments usually takes a few consecutive sessions per year, if at all. In most cases, insurance covers them.
With the documented success of TMS treating medication-resistant depression, most insurers cover the treatment. Don’t know if your insurance covers TMS? Don’t worry! Success TMS provides a complimentary insurance verification. Just call us at 855-943-3232 to confirm your insurance pre-approval, if applicable.
At your first appointment at Success TMS, you’ll complete some paperwork, and then have an interview with our physician. The paperwork takes around 15 minutes, and the interview takes up to 45 minutes. The physician will review your medical and mental health history, and then discuss the treatment with you. You’ll have the chance to ask any questions you have about TMS therapy. We want you to have all the information you need to make a confident decision!
Most courses of treatment last four to six weeks, with up to five sessions a week.
When you become an Success TMS patient, you receive a written schedule that shows your full course of treatment. This helps you plan your life for the next few weeks and gives you the time and information you need to make any accommodations you need before treatment starts.
The majority of people with depression can benefit from TMS therapy. A small number of people are ineligible, and this is typically because they have non-removable metal in their head that disqualifies them from receiving TMS. That’s because the metal reacts unfavorably with magnetic energy.
