TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION THERAPY IN SAN DIEGO
Have you tried medications but are still suffering from depression?
Are you looking for a treatment that doesn’t have debilitating side effects?
If this sounds familiar, TMS is a revolutionary treatment that may be right for you.
TMS is a groundbreaking treatment for Depression that uses MRI technology to restore the limited neuronal activity of a depressed brain. It is FDA-approved, non-invasive, covered by insurance providers, and virtually free of side effects.
TMS is highly effective for patients with tough-to-treat depression. Over half of patients respond to TMS and more than one-third achieve remission. This is remarkable news for those who have tried multiple treatments without hope of getting better.
TMS is a long-lasting treatment for depression. Over two-thirds of patients retain their response one year after completing a cycle of TMS. And even for those patients who relapse, the great news is that over 80% of patients respond to a second round of TMS.
Over 40% of patients with depression do not achieve remission from antidepressants. Moreover, medications can often produce unwanted side effects, such as fatigue, drowsiness, weight gain, nausea, and sexual problems, to name a few.
TMS is virtually free of side effects because it treats depression in the exact location where it occurs, as opposed to circling the body like medications. Some patients may feel a headache or scalp sensitivity in the treatment location of TMS, which generally goes away within a few days.
