NeuroStar TMS Therapy
NeuroStar therapy uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to address key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with several mental health ailments, but more specifically for those with depression. The exact cause of depression remains unknown but is believed to be caused by an imbalance of the brainâ€™s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
What is NeuroStar Therapy (TMS)?
The magnet has similar strength levels to a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. It is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain that is responsible for controlling mood and behavior. The magnetic pulses can potentially provide a positive effect on the brainâ€™s neurotransmitter levels, creating the possibility of long-term remission for depression.Â
What You Can Expect During a NeuroStar Therapy Treatment
NeuroStar therapy is a non-invasive treatment and non-drug treatment. The patient experiences little to no discomfort during a session. You can expect treatment to last about thirty-five minutes. Multiple treatments (between 5-30 treatments) are typically necessary in order to achieve the desired outcome. Many of our patients who have suffered from depression for many years have begun to feel noticeably better after only a few treatments.
Treatment with NeuroStar Therapy is Easy!
NeuroStar therapy sessions take place in your doctorâ€™s office. There arenâ€™t any effects preventing you from your normal daily activities immediately following your NeuroStar therapy session. You are completely awake during your treatment. NeuroStar therapy has no negative side effects on your sleep or memory. Finally, NeuroStar is cost-efficient and is covered by most health insurance plans, including Tricare.
