Depression is a treatable mental illness, but the standard treatments aren’t effective for everyone.
Many people try anti-depressant medication along with lifestyle changes, but don’t experience any benefit.
If you’ve tried these treatments without success, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be able to help.
TMS is a depression treatment with a proven track record of success, with 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people. Success TMS in Glenview, Illinois offers TMS therapy, a treatment that could help you find your way back to a full, rich life.
TMS is a drug-free depression treatment that doesn’t involve any invasive procedures. When you have TMS therapy at our Glenview office, you’ll sit comfortably in a chair, and a technician will place an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. When they turn the TMS device on, the coil will send painless magnetic pulses to stimulate your brain.
This works to relieve depression because the magnetic pulses stimulate the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain where mood is regulated. The prefrontal cortex doesn’t work as effectively in people with depression, but TMS therapy helps it get back to normal activity levels.
TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.
TMS therapy is different from other treatments in three important ways:
TMS therapy is completely drug-free, so it’s ideal for people who:
Some people who try anti-depressants don’t see any benefits. When anti-depressants aren’t appropriate, TMS therapy can be a good alternative.
Some other depression treatments, like deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy, can be effective. The problem is, these are invasive, involving unpleasant procedures, surgery, and/or anesthesia.
TMS therapy is different because as well as being drug-free, it’s also completely non-invasive. When you have TMS therapy, you sit comfortably in a chair. You can even relax and listen to music or watch TV!
Fewer than 5% of people discontinue TMS therapy because of side effects. For those people who stop having treatment, the most common side effect is temporary discomfort at or near the treatment site, during treatment. This discomfort usually subsides after the first week of treatment sessions.
Most people who start TMS therapy notice positive changes within the first two to three weeks. For some, it happens even sooner!
The benefits of TMS therapy are long-term, but some people need to have booster treatments to maintain the effects. For most, a few consecutive treatments a year is enough to stay depression-free. Most insurance companies cover booster treatments.
Most insurance providers cover TMS therapy for depression treatment. This FDA-approved treatment is clinically proven for depression.
