Longterm Benefits of TMS Treatment For Depression

June 2, 2022

Depression is a serious mental illness that can have significant impacts on an individual’s quality of life. While there are many different treatment options available, not all of them are effective for everyone. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a newer treatment option that has been found to be highly effective in treating depression and has a number of long-term benefits.

TMS is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the brain. It is typically used when other treatment options, such as medication and therapy, have not been successful. TMS has been found to be an effective treatment for both major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder.

One of the major benefits of TMS is that it can be used as a long-term treatment option. In some cases, TMS may be used on a daily basis for several weeks or months. However, once the initial course of treatment is completed, TMS can be used on an as-needed basis to help prevent future episodes of depression.

Another benefit of TMS is that it has very few side effects. The most common side effect is temporary headaches or scalp discomfort. Some people may also experience dizziness, tingling, or nausea during treatment. However, these side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own within a few days.

TMS is an effective treatment option for depression that can offer long-term benefits. If you are considering TMS for your depression, get in touch with us today at (320) 348-1200 and learn more at stcloudtms.com.
