Achieve TMS, the largest U.S. provider of deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for the treatment of depression, is expanding its presence in the central coast region. Two new office locations are opening in San Luis Obispo County, introducing local residents to the powerful treatment effects of deep TMS technology. With major depression afflicting over 16 million Americans each year, deep TMS offers new hope to those who are treatment-resistant, having experienced no relief from traditional antidepressant medication therapy.
Deep TMS offers an exciting new alternative treatment for major depressive disorder that is safe, non-invasive, and highly effective. Deep TMS works by administering magnetic pulses through an H-coil on the scalp that is targeted to the mood center of the brain. The magnetic fields induce electrical currents that stimulate underactive neurons, helping to reset brain chemistry during the course of treatment, resulting in improved sleep, concentration, and overall mood.
In more than 60 clinical studies globally, deep TMS has consistently demonstrated statistically significant response and remission rates. The therapy is well tolerated by patients, causing few, if any at all, adverse effects. Treatment sessions are prescribed 5 days per week for 4-6 weeks, with each session lasting 20 minutes. There is no sedation involved, and no down time required.
“With 1 in 6 Americans suffering from depression there is a huge need for treatments that are proven to make a difference in the battle against this debilitating disease,” Manish Sheth, M.D., Ph.D. said. “Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has proven to be an effective tool in the battle. Our patients are looking for an effective way to move away from depression into a place where lives are productive, balanced, healthy and well integrated, and TMS is a vital tool in helping people arrive at this place. We are proud to partner with psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists in the greater San Luis Obispo area to expand this treatment option to two new centers in the area.”
