APP Health Group offers TMS Therapy at our New Rochelle Center– TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) Therapy is an FDA-cleared non-invasive medical treatment for patients with major depression who have not benefited from antidepressant medications.
In patients experiencing depression, there is often significantly less activity throughout regions of their brain. This is believed to be a possible cause of the depression itself. Neurostar TMS focuses on treating the source of the depression. It sends magnetic pulses which electrically stimulate the brain and increase activity.
During a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy session, a magnet similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
