What is TMS?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an FDA approved, non-invasive treatment for depression.
Additionally, research shows TMS to be highly beneficial in helping those with conditions such as PTSD, OCD, Addictions, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, and Chronic Pain. However, TMS is only approved for depression treatment by most insurance payers. TMS is widely researched and poised to dramatically change the treatment of psychological and neurological conditions, that persons may experience when experiencing depression.
Currently TMS is FDA approved for the treatment of treatment resistant depression by most insurance providers.
How TMS treatment works at Thomas Park MD & Associates?
First, you will see one of our knowledgeable psychiatric specialist for a consultant to determine if TMS depression treatment is right for you. Once the treatment protocol is approved and ordered, you will schedule a treatment with one of the friendly staff. Treatment consists of 5 treatment sessions a week, roughly 4-6 weeks based on the nature of your symptoms. Our compassionate and knowledgeable staff work hard to ensure that the entire treatment process is comfortable to you as the client and effective.
- Clients remain alert and awake during TMS treatment sessions.
- Most clients feel no pain during TMS treatment.
- While some clients may report mild headache or scalp discomfort after the first treatment, these minor irritations tend to subside after a few treatment sessions.
- After each TMS treatment session, clients can return home independently and resume their normal daily routine and activities in their life.
Is TMS safe and effective?
Short Answer, yes. TMS was approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2008 for treating Major Depressive Disorder in adults who have not responded to prior antidepressant medications or other depression treatment interventions.
TMS is known to be effective for adults with depression, who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medications. This means that if you have been diagnosed with depression and medications and/or other depression treatment interventions are not working or are causing negative side effects, you should consider TMS treatment and discuss this with your medical provider.
