Birmingham TMS now offers a proven, innovative, non-drug therapy for adults who are struggling with Major Depressive Disorder and are not adequately benefiting from anti-depressant medications. Patients can now fight depression with transformational treatment.
NeuroStar Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a safe, FDA-approved, in-office treatment that uses a precise pulsed magnetic field to help stimulate and regulate the healthy, natural functions of the brain. In-office treatment takes 19-37 minutes and is administered five days a week for approximately six weeks. While reclining in a spa-like chair, a small curved magnetic coil is lightly positioned on the head, a clicking noise is audible and a tapping sensation is felt on the head. TMS must be prescribed by a TMS-trained physician, and Dr. Michaels recommends scheduling a consultation to determine whether TMS is appropriate for prospective patients.
