Is TMS Therapy Right for You?
TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) therapy is a revolutionary depression treatment designed to help individuals that do not have positive responses to therapy and depression medication. Using magnetic fields to help stimulate nerves in the brains allows the procedure to be completely noninvasive. TMS therapy is not for those who have been recently diagnosed. This therapy works best for those that have not found relief with other depression treatments.
Electromagnetic coils are used while facilitating the procedure. The coils are placed on the head (near the forehead) so that electromagnetism can be sent to the depression centers of the brain. There are regions of the brain that control mood and depression, and TMS therapy attempts to wake those parts of the brain up. Those that respond positively to this treatment notice a lessening of depression symptoms, improved mood, and an increase in energy. Many who seek our services find long-lasting results. We want to help take back your life. We provide TMS therapy for Columbus, Ohio and the surrounding area.
Remember, depression is a treatable condition—even when it seems all options are spent.
There are three main requirements that patients must meet to be considered for transcranial magnetic stimulation. Patients must be:
Diagnosed with major depressive disorder by a doctor
Resistant to antidepressant medication
18 years of age or older
Gender and age (after 18) do not play a significant factor in determining eligibility for depression treatments. Some individuals are not ideal candidates for this treatment:
Prone to seizures
Metal objects in the body
Certain types of implants
