Sometimes, when you live with depression, it’s not just one big thing. It's all of the little things that can really wear you down and make everyday life challenging. It’s the lingering sadness, anxiety, loss of interest, and general hopelessness that continue to build up and make it difficult to function.
With depression, it can feel like life’s simply lost its flavor.
Clinical depression is so much more than just having a bad day. In fact, depression is currently the leading cause of disability and poor health worldwide and it’s something that an estimated 1 in 6 Americans deal with each year. 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?
For that one-third of people, the symptoms continue to linger and build. They likely worsen over time and the heavy veil of depression makes it harder and harder to function. When patients don’t experience relief from medications, TMS Therapy offers new hope.
TMS is a non-invasive therapy that involves no medication and has very few side effects”, said Dr. Joshua Flatow. “When medications fail to proved relief for patents, TMS therapy might be more effective than trying yet another antidepressant medication.”
TMS Therapy is an FDA cleared in 2008 and patients have been treated for major depression with TMS since the mid-1990s. This treatment uses MRI strength magnetic pulses that are delivered several times per second into the front part of the head.
If you or a loved one suffers from depression, you might be wondering how anyone can really relate to what you’re going through. You want to get better, but it’s hard to see hope when you are living life in a fog.
Maybe you’ve tried antidepressants without relief.
Maybe the side effects from your current medications are weighing you down.
Maybe the uncertainty, fear, and stress surrounding COVID-19 have taken a toll on your emotional wellness…
