Depression is a serious illness, but it’s treatable. Standard depression treatments, such as medication and lifestyle changes, don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried these treatments without experiencing any relief, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be able to help. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers in Hinsdale, Illinois offers TMS therapy in a comfortable, relaxed environment. With 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people, TMS is a proven treatment for people with depression.
TMS is a depression treatment that is non-invasive and drug-free. It works by exposing the prefrontal cortex of the brain to electromagnetic energy.
When you have TMS therapy at Success TMS, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. Once they turn the device on, the coil sends magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex.
The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain where mood is regulated. In someone with depression, the prefrontal cortex isn’t as active, so it doesn’t regulate mood well. The electromagnetic energy from TMS therapy stimulates the prefrontal cortex and helps it work to regulate mood more effectively.
TMS therapy is a very effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.
TMS therapy is different from other treatments for three important ways:
Because TMS therapy is completely drug free, it’s a good option for people who:
Anti-depressants help many people, but not everyone can or wants to take drugs for depression. TMS therapy can be a good alternative.
There are some other options for depression treatment. These include deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. However, many people are hesitant to try these treatments because they involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and anesthesia.
TMS therapy is a simple treatment that is easily tolerated because it’s non-invasive and drug-free.
Fewer than 5% of people who have TMS therapy stop treatment because of side effects. The most common side effect is discomfort felt at the treatment site, while the treatment is taking place. For most people who experience this, the discomfort subsides after the first week of treatment sessions.
Most people who have TMS notice an improvement in their mood after only two or three weeks of starting treatment. For some people, this happens even sooner!
The effects of TMS are long-term, but some people need booster treatments to maintain the effects. For most people who need booster sessions, a few consecutive treatments a year is enough.
TMS therapy is clinically proven to treat depression, so most insurance companies provide coverage. Insurance covers the cost of booster treatments in most cases, too.
