TMS Health Solutions Helps Diagnose & Treat Clinical Depression

Did you know that one of the leading causes of disability in the United States is actually clinical depression? Clinical depression is a driving force for issues in people ranging from ages 15 to 44, though we’re sure that it impacts people of all ages. Clinical depression can be hard to identify and harder to treat. The efficacy rate of traditional clinical depression treatment sits at around 60% which means that a large portion of people are left suffering without proper recourse. TMS Health Solutions is working toward providing innovative therapeutic techniques that look out for the people that get left behind.

TMS Health Solutions has been one of Northern California’s most powerful resources for clinical depression since their first facility first opened its doors in 2007. Over the past ten years, founder Dr. Richard Bermudes has been at the forefront of the conversation pertaining to treating clinical depression in new ways. He has helped to bring Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS Therapy) to the forefront of the discussion on treating the damaging mental illness. His work can be found being put into practice in all of the TMS Health Solutions facilities in Northern California, including their new branches in Sacramento and Oakland, as well as the publication ‘American Psychiatric Association’. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of depression since 2008 and people are still just learning about it today.

In order to receive TMS Therapy, users need only go through the proper channels at their nearest TMS Health facility. Once approved for treatment, patients will sit down in a reclining chair while a physician goes through the application process. The process of TMS Therapy is simple, pain-free, and quick with most sessions lasting only 50 minutes or so. The treatment process includes targeted waves of magnetic pulses that are directed toward the portion of your brain’s frontal lobe most responsible for clinical depression. Many users find immediate relief but still, more will come back for re-occurring treatment sessions in order to maintain their results until their brain takes over and does the rest of the work for them.
