TMS Therapy Provides Depression Treatment for Redding Patients
Psychiatric Care Center in Redding now provides TMS therapy as a depression treatment. TMS stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation. TMS therapy involves magnets being placed around a patient’s head to reactivate parts of the brain that were previously inactive due to depression. In office TMS therapy treatments take about 30 minutes and are administered 5 days a week for between 4-6 weeks.
Who is a candidate for NeuroStar TMS therapy? People who have depression that interferes with their daily life and have not responded well to prior anti-depression medications may be candidates for TMS therapy. PCC also provides complimentary therapy in conjunction with Neurostar TMS therapy as a treatment for depression.
