TMS stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation. Live a life free of depression with TMS Therapy. This treatment is used to treat depression by stimulating the brain non-invasively using electromagnetic fields, similar to those produced by an MRI machine. During TMS Therapy, a magnetic field is administered in very short pulses to the part of the brain that research has demonstrated to be associated with depression. Comprehensive Behavioral Health (CBH) is now offering this safe and effective treatment for major depression in Bethesda.
TMS therapy is non-invasive, and does not cause the typical side effects that traditional medication can. TMS is a great option for those who are struggling with depression and not getting full relief from medication and therapy. With that said, patients who receive TMS therapy can combine it with other treatment strategies, including medication.
Patients typically can return to their regular daily activities immediately following treatment. Patients can usually drive and work as well.
