Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain and improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments fail. TMS treatment involves delivering repetitive magnetic pulses, known as repetitive TMS or rTMS.
During a rTMS session, an electromagnetic coil is placed against your scalp near your forehead. This magnet, similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine delivers a magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells in that part of your brain involved in mood control and depression. The magnetic impulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels making long-term remission possible. TMS is done at your doctor’s office and you can return to normal activities immediately after a treatment. There are no negative effects on memory or sleep.
Depression can a be treatable condition, but sometimes standard treatments aren't effective or may cause intolerable negative side effects. TMS may not be the best treatment for everyone but ask about it today and see if it is right treatment for you.

Therapeutic treatment begins with an initial evaluation and recommendations, which often combine psychotherapy and medication for complete care, as well as specific exercise and relaxation techniques. Psychotherapy may include individual, group, or play therapy along with family involvement to enhance understanding and improve relationships.
Medication management is a method of engaging with patients and caregivers to create a complete, accurate medication list, which is the foundation for addressing medication problems. It aims to ensure the health of individuals and manage their health care costs. Medication management can also result in less money being spent on emergency room visits and hospital stays, as well as reduced illnesses and deaths due to medication noncompliance or negative drug interactions.
