We believe it’s important for the community to understand both how we help and who we can help.
At Neurotherapeutix, our goal is to give patients access to the highest level of mental health care available today, by offering an innovative and scientifically proven TMS treatment plan for restoration and wellness.
TMS Treatment for Depression
1. We have success in treating patients who’ve been failed by therapy, medication, and other first-line treatments.
The symptoms of depression can be crippling for those who suffer from this illness.
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a debilitating illness associated with frequent relapses, persistent symptoms, and incomplete recovery.
MDD can interfere with daily activities, causing persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest, and hope. It negatively impacts relationships, disrupts school and career goals, and robs people of the peace and happiness they hope for in life. In the worst cases, some people feel as if life isn’t worth living anymore.
The darkness of depression is something that affects an estimated 1 in 6 Americans. Luckily, many will find relief in medications and/or therapy, but what about the 30% of patients who still can’t find relief from their depression symptoms?
At Neurotherapeutix, we use neuroimaging in combination with TMS Therapy. TMS uses a magnetic field to stimulate brain areas that control mood, and which may be under-active or over-active in the depressed individual.
2. We have success in treating patients who didn’t get well with Standard TMS.
Standard TMS therapy does bring relief for many.
It’s an FDA-cleared treatment for Major Depression, but sometimes, standard TMS doesn’t help. It’s easy to feel discouraged if you have undergone TMS without significant success. But now, there’s hope!
Our fMRI-guided guided TMS Therapy helps us address specific areas of your brain that need to be stimulated. Neuroimaging technology helps us identify brain networks not working as they should. We then create a TMS treatment plan that targets a specific spot (or spots) that require treatment.
Other Mental Health Conditions
It’s also important to remember that we’ve had great success in treating many other off-label conditions with TMS Therapy.
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Chronic Pain
- Auditory Hallucinations
- and other neuropsychiatric disorders.
