Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Columbia, SC
No one wants to be depressed. Unfortunately talk therapy and trials of different antidepressant medications don’t work for everyone. Depression is a treatable condition but almost 30 percent of people with depression don’t respond to antidepressants.
If you have failed to obtain relief from depression after trying 2 different antidepressants, or if your body just cant take the side effects of antidepressants, TMS may be right for you.
WHAT IS TMS?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a safe and effective treatment for individuals diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder who have not experienced significant improvement from antidepressant medications. TMS can be used in conjunction with medications or as a stand-alone treatment. This novel treatment option provides benefits without the side effects often associated with antidepressant medication. TMS is FDA approved and has years of research and clinical experience supporting its effectiveness with relieving depression.
HOW DOES TMS WORK?
TMS therapy works by using MRI strength magnetic fields to excite brain regions known to regulate mood. By repeatedly stimulating these areas, the brain is encouraged to function more normally and regulate the mood more effectively.
WHAT CAN TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION TREAT?
While transcranial magnetic stimulation is only FDA approved for treating patients with depression when other depression treatment options are ineffective, it is also a possible treatment option for other disorders. Transcranial Magnetic stimulation has been shown helpful in the treatment of PTSD, pain disorders, recovery from stroke, obesity, autism, and insomnia. Continued research is needed before the FDA will approve TMS for the treatment of these disorders. If you are interested in TMS for conditions not FDA approved insurance will not cover them because it is considered experimental. However, you have the option to pay out of pocket for TMS protocols to address your specific condition (your clinician will determine if TMS is right for you after a free consult).
