TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is a treatment for clients who have been suffering from depression for a long time and who were not able to benefit from medications. Our office in Queens offers TMS with Neurostar Technology. Here is a link to their website: http://www.tristatetms.com/index.php/home
Below, you can read and learn more about this specific machine and what you can expect in a TMS treatment.
What is a Neuronetics Neurostar?
NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression.
It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory
is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters,
which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)?
During a NeuroStar treatment session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood.
These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
With more than one million treatments performed, this novel treatment approach to achieving remission is bringing new hope to people every day.
Treatment with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is easy:
Therapy sessions are conducted in your doctor’s office
You can return to normal activities right away
You are awake during treatment
There are no negative effects on memory or sleep
