Call 870.657.0337 to speak with someone from Alleviant Health Centers in Jonesboro’s knowledgeable and experienced team about how TMS therapy can help you or someone you love get on the path to overcoming challenges of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety.

What Is NeuroStar TMS Therapy?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy uses magnetic fields to stimulate areas of the brain that are linked to depression or anxiety. It is a non-invasive procedure requiring no surgery or sedation, and you can return home immediately after your session.

History of TMS Therapy

TMS therapy has been around since 1985, when Anthony Barker and his team of researchers at the University of Sheffield developed the first transcranial magnetic stimulation device. This new device allowed them to study the effects of a repetitive magnetic pulse on brain function. Since then, TMS therapy has been used in various forms to treat several mental health disorders.

NeuroStar TMS therapy was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States in 2008 to treat major depressive disorder (MDD) in adult patients who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from one prior antidepressant medication. TMS therapy for anxiety is also showing great promise.

What to Expect from NeuroStar TMS Therapy

During the procedure at Alleviant Health Centers in Jonesboro, a patient remains awake and alert while lying in a comfortable chair. At the same time, magnetic pulses are administered through an electromagnetic coil placed near their head. In just one session, patients can expect relief from symptoms of depression or anxiety.

TMS treatment is most beneficial for people who have not had success with other treatments for depression or anxiety, such as medication and psychotherapy. Research has shown that individuals who do not respond well to traditional treatments often find relief from their symptoms through NeuroStar TMS therapy. It is also beneficial for those looking for an alternative treatment option that does not involve taking medications or undergoing invasive procedures such as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).

NeuroStar has helped thousands of people find relief from their symptoms of depression or anxiety, including those in Arkansas. Patients often notice an improvement in mood, sleep quality, and overall well-being within just a few weeks of beginning NeuroStar TMS therapy.
