TMS therapy has transformed the lives of countless individuals seeking relief from depression. TMS therapy, which stands for Transgranial Magnetic Stimulation, is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate specific areas of the brain that are associated with mood regulation. Patients looking for TMS therapy turn to NeuroStar.
Watch NeuroStar patient Cara describe her experience with TMS or read the article to learn more.
People with Depression Can Consider TMS Therapy
Cara is a licensed counselor and also a patient who sought relief via TMS therapy. Treatment with NeuroStar TMS is easy and it is natural to have questions. Research suggests that people with depression may benefit more from TMS than people with post-traumatic disorder or generalized anxiety.
Unlike traditional treatments such as medication or electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), TMS therapy does not involve anesthesia or require hospitalization. This makes it an attractive option for people who want an effective and comfortable alternative depression treatment.
Some people feel relief after TMS therapy in as little as three weeks, such as mental health advocate Drew Robinson. Others feel better closer to six.
“Do Your Research” and “Have a Good Psychiatrist,” Cara shares
Cara asks people to consider, “What if?” What if you could feel better? What if it didn’t have to be this hard to exist day to day?
Cara also shares other tips in her testimonial, specifically reminding people to do their research and be in communication with a psychiatrist they trust. “Make an educated decision about it,” Cara reminds people.
“What if it’s a game changer for you?” Cara says with a warm smile. “What if you can start to live the life that you’re supposed to be living?”
