Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Fort Lauderdale

Depression is a treatable illness, but for many people, the standard treatments just aren’t effective. If you’ve tried anti-depressant medications or lifestyle changes without seeing any benefits, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be of help.

More than 2,150,000 sessions of TMS have been provided to over 65,000 people, showing TMS therapy has a proven track record of success. TMS could be the treatment that helps you break free from depression.

What Is TMS?

TMS is a depression treatment that is both drug-free and non-invasive. TMS therapy targets the prefrontal cortex of the brain, stimulating the cells with a magnetic field. This helps the cells work more effectively to regulate mood.

When you have TMS therapy at HPRTC, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. Once they switch the device on, the coil sends magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex to help your brain regulate mood more effectively.

TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.

How is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?

TMS therapy is different from other treatments because it’s:

1. Drug-Free

Because TMS therapy is completely drug free, it’s a good option for people who:

  • Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
  • Can’t tolerate the side effects of medication
  • Don’t want to take anti-depressant drugs

Anti-depressants do help many people, but not everyone can or wants to take them. TMS therapy can be a good alternative to get relief from depression.

2. Non-Invasive

There are other drug-free depression treatments available, including electroconvulsive therapy, vagus nerve stimulation, and deep brain stimulation. However, these involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and often require anesthesia.

TMS therapy is different because it’s drug-free and doesn’t require any invasive or unpleasant procedures.

3. Almost Side-Effect Free

Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. For those patients, there can be some discomfort at the treatment site, during the treatment. This is short-term and usually goes away after around a week.

How Long Does It Take for TMS Therapy to Work?

Most people who have TMS therapy see some positive changes in mood within two to three weeks. For others, it happens even sooner!

TMS therapy is a long-term treatment, but some people need occasional booster treatments to stay free from depression. If you need booster treatments, it’s likely you’ll need only one treatment a year. Most insurance covers booster treatments.
