Need help with your depression? Get results with TMS therapy. Contact or visit Success TMS in Lombard, Illinois.
Depression is a treatable illness, but for many people, standard treatments, such as medication and lifestyle changes, just don’t work. If you’ve tried these and are still suffering, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may help. Success TMS is conveniently located in Lombard, IL. With a proven track record of 2,150,000 treatments administered to over 65,000 people, TMS therapy can help you get back to a life of joy.
TMS is a depression treatment that’s non-invasive and doesn’t involve the use of any medications. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of your brain is stimulated with a magnetic field. This helps brain cells function more effectively to regulate your mood.
In TMS therapy, an Success TMS technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head and then turns the device on. The coil sends magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex, the region of the brain that regulates mood.
TMS therapy is a highly effective treatment for depression, as our own patient’s testimonials demonstrate.
TMS therapy differs from other depression treatments in three important ways:
TMS therapy is an effective depression treatment therapy for those who:
While anti-depressants help many people, not everyone benefits from them. Some people have health issues that make depression medications intolerable. TMS therapy can be a viable option for depression relief.
Other depression treatments, such as deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), can treat depression, but involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and they require anesthesia. TMS therapy is both effective and non-invasive
Fewer than 5% of patients discontinue TMS therapy due to side effects. For those patients, there can be temporary discomfort at or near the treatment site while treatment is happening. This usually subsides after the first week of treatment.
Most people notice positive changes to their mood within two to three weeks of starting TMS therapy — some even sooner!
The effects of TMS therapy are long-term, but booster treatments may be needed to stay depression-free. If you need booster treatments, you’ll likely only need one once a year. Most insurance covers booster treatments.
With the documented success of TMS treating medication-resistant depression, most insurers cover the procedure. Not sure if your insurance covers TMS? Don’t worry! Success TMS Treatment Centers provides a complimentary insurance verification. Just call us at 855-943-3232 to confirm your insurance pre-approval, if applicable.
Your first appointment at Success TMS Treatment Centers is an assessment. You’ll spend around 15 minutes completing some paperwork, then meet with our physician for up to 45 minutes. After the physician reviews your medical history, they’ll discuss the treatment with you, and you’ll have the chance to ask any questions you have. We want you to have all the information you need to make the best choice for you!
When you become an Success TMS patient, you’ll receive a written schedule with your full course of treatment, so you can make any accommodations necessary for treatment. In most cases, treatment lasts four to six weeks.
Most people with depression can benefit from TMS therapy, but a small number of people are ineligible for reasons that don’t relate directly to the treatment. If you have any kind of non-removable metal in your head, you won’t be able to have TMS treatments because the metal reacts unfavorably with magnetic energy. That includes:
One session of TMS therapy at the Success TMS treatment center in Lombard takes around 18 to 20 minutes. A typical course of treatment involves up to five sessions a week, for four to six weeks.
