Which Conditions Does NeuroStar TMS Therapy Address?

NeuroStar TMS therapy can treat our New Jersey patients who experience one or more of the following conditions:

NeuroStar is especially ideal for individuals who have struggled with standard medication for the above conditions. This treatment can offer hope to those who have trouble managing medicinal side effects or have not found relief despite trying multiple kinds of medication.

Major Depressive Disorder

NeuroStar TMS therapy has effectively treated New Jersey patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), a condition also known as clinical depression. MDD is one of the most prevalent mental health issues in the world, possibly affecting up to 17% of the population.

A professional diagnosis of MDD typically involves experiencing a persistent depressed mood in addition to at least four of the following symptoms:

  • Lack of energy
  • Poor concentration
  • Changes in sleep
  • Changes in appetite
  • Persistently low mood
  • Psychomotor slowing or agitation
  • Decreased interest in activities
  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  • Suicidal thoughts

As with all mental health conditions, MDD is linked to abnormalities in brain function. These abnormalities tend to affect the regions of the brain that control and regulate mood, emotion, and behavior. TMS therapy can target and stimulate these areas in a way that helps reduce the symptoms of MDD.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition that manifests through intrusive, persistent thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors (compulsions). These symptoms can severely disrupt and impair a person’s daily life.

The effects of OCD can cause significant distress for patients. Like MDD, OCD is also linked to brain activity. Brain imaging studies have highlighted differences in brain function in OCD patients, especially areas that regulate emotion and behavior—it is these impairments and differences that cause obsessions and compulsions.

Major Depressive Disorder With Anxious Depression

Many individuals with clinical depression also experience anxiety, formally called major depressive disorder with anxious depression. Patients with MDD and anxious depression exhibit symptoms of anxiety alongside typical clinical depression symptoms, including:

  • Tension
  • Restlessness
  • Uncontrollable fear
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Excessive worry

Patients with dual conditions such as these can experience greater impairments than if they only had one diagnosis. As a result, MDD and anxiety can lead to a poorer prognosis and quality of life.

How Does TMS Therapy Alleviate MDD and OCD Symptoms?

TMS therapies like NeuroStar target the brain regions associated with mood, emotion, and behavior. These areas can become impaired due to a mental health condition and TMS can physically stimulate them using electromagnetic waves in a safe and controlled manner. Over time, the brain improves its activity in these regions, alleviating these symptoms.

NeuroStar offers numerous benefits to our New Jersey patients, making it the #1 doctor-recommended TMS therapy. Some of the most notable highlights of this fantastic treatment include:

  • Rapid, 7-week treatment course with daily sessions
  • Quick, 19-minutes treatment sessions
  • No downtime or recovery time required
  • No serious side effects
  • Mild side effects can easily be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Nationwide insurance coverage, including Blue Cross / Blue Shield, United Health Care, Cigna, Aetna, Medicare, and Tricare

NeuroStar has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients living with depression, OCD, and anxiety—you can be next with a consultation at The TMS Center of New Jersey.
