At the end of the 20th Century, we have witnessed amazing developments in the biological treatment of depression. Yet, up to 30% of those afflicted with this debilitating illness still struggle with depressive symptoms each day because their antidepressant medications are either ineffective or they cannot tolerate their uncomfortable side effects.
During the first decade of the 21st century, we have continued to make great advances in our understanding of how the brain works. The exciting new field of neuromodulation has allowed the delicate balance of neurotransmitters within the brain to be restored safely and effectively without the need for systemic medications. As a result, we can now offer more effective treatment for depression with better tolerability.
At The TMS Center of New Jersey, we are proud to be the first medical practice in Monmouth County and the entire Jersey Shore to introduce Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a revolutionary new FDA approved treatment for Depression. TMS is clinically proven to improve the symptoms of depression that did not respond to prior antidepressant treatments and does not cause any of the side effects commonly associated with antidepressant medications. TMS is a safe, effective option for those who have not responded to or are intolerant of antidepressant medications or just prefer a non-pharmacologic approach to treating their depression.
About TMS Therapy
Transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. It is sometimes referred to as rTMS which stands for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. TMS patients receiving TMS Therapy remain awake and alert during the procedure.
