Depression is a major concern for millions of people today and is estimated to affect around 300 million people around the world. Many who seek treatment do well with one oral medication or with a range of drugs. Others find relief and hope with non-medicinal therapy, such as behavioral therapy. However, some do not find relief with any of the usual treatment options and instead must look elsewhere for hope. At Cady Wellness Institute, we offer help for stubborn depression that has not responded to the usual treatment methods. With TMS Therapy, we can safely and effectively stimulate the brain using magnetic pulses and provide relief without problematic side effects. Learn more about this treatment to see if it may be right for you.
TMS Therapy stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation. It is a non-invasive treatment performed directly over your brain. During the treatment, you will have an electromagnetic piece placed on your scalp near your forehead. This placement allows the device to provide the most benefits to that area of the brain that is most apt to be targeted in mood disorders. It will reactivate certain parts of your brain that may be feeling depressed and improve brain activity.
It has proven to be effective in many people who have not experienced good enough results from other depression treatments. This treatment should be used repeatedly for the best results. Because this therapy is non-invasive, it does not leave any scars. In addition, it does not require any anesthesia. You will be awake and alert throughout the entire treatment and should feel perfectly relaxed and comfortable. We have TMS therapy testimonials on our website to give you an idea of what other patients have gone through.
At Cady Wellness Institute, you can trust that our experienced practitioners have your welfare at the heart of all they do. We generally recommend up to five treatments per week for around a month and a half. This will give you approximately 30 total treatments to reactivate depressed areas of your brain. Each treatment lasts around 40 minutes, and you can immediately return to your regular activities after your treatment is completed. You can even drive yourself to and from your appointment.
