TMS is a revolutionary treatment that stimulates nerve cells in the brain with magnetic pulses. These pulses focus on the brain’s left prefrontal cortex, the area where depression develops. They stimulate neurotransmitters in a manner that dramatically reduces depression symptoms and can even provide complete remission.

Depression is one of the most devastating mood disorders that anyone can experience. It not only makes you sad, it also leaves you disinterested in just about everything. It affects how you feel and how you think – and it can lead to a variety of terrible physical and emotional issues. Depression can make it hard to perform even the simplest tasks, and can even make you believe that life is no longer even worth living. If you’re suffering from depression you might identify with some of these symptoms:
You can’t just “snap out” of depression. You need to get help. That help is available at NeuroSpa TMS®. If you’re experiencing any of the following problems, please get in touch with us to learn more about TMS depression treatment in Brandon.
Anxiety and depression are different types of disorders, but they often go hand in hand. Anxiety can strike anyone – no matter how old you are, what your ethnicity may be, or how much money you make. Many people with depression will often develop anxiety as well. Anxiety can be a symptom of depression, and a disorder related to anxiety, such as general anxiety disorder or panic disorder, can trigger depression.
One of the most common symptoms of anxiety is a feeling of complete dread or distress while anticipating a major event, such as going on a job interview or preparing to move to a new home. But these symptoms can also hit before something that should be joyous, such as a wedding or a holiday party. Like depression, anxiety can be so debilitating that you find it almost impossible to focus on even the simplest tasks.
But TMS may be able to help with depression related anxiety as well. One of the reasons people experience this problem is that certain electromechanical signals in the brain misfire. These misfires also occur in the left prefrontal cortex – the same area that leads to the development of depression symptoms and the same area TMS targets. TMS therapy helps get the neurotransmitters back to functioning normally. When many of our patients come into our Brandon office for depression treatment, they can start to see positive results for anxiety treatment as well after just a few sessions.
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, can be devastating. PTSD affects 1 in 11 people, and, as the name implies, develops after some sort of traumatic experience. Many people who suffer from depression also suffer from depression Related PTSD as well. It could be due to being physically harmed, witnessing a shooting or a horrible car accident, or some other event. PTSD can last for a few weeks, a few months, or for several years. About 50 percent of people who suffer from PTSD also have depression.
TMS can also help people with depression related PTSD by reestablishing healthy communications between the neurotransmitters in the brain. People with the depression related PTSD who have TMS treatments can also see improvement in as little as a few weeks.
If you’re worried that you won’t be able to afford TMS treatment in Brandon, we may be able to help. As we covered earlier, most major insurance providers cover TMS only for depression. However, insurance may also cover people who have other issues related to depression. Call us and we’ll be happy to provide more details.
