Depression is one of the most common and most confounding illnesses in the world today. However, an innovative mental health clinic network is bringing new hope to people who suffer from clinical depression. That clinic network, TMS Health Solutions, is changing the way clinical depression is treated across Northern California.
With 14% to 17% of people, in the United States, suffering some sort of depressive episode in their lifetime, TMS Health Solutions provides an innovative, proven approach. The difference is TMS Health Solutions’ unique treatment path that can include a combination of four types of therapies.
First, there is traditional psychotherapy. This is also known as “talk therapy.” With this treatment, a specialized psychotherapist will engage with the patient and utilize either interpersonal therapy or cognitive behavioral therapy. Psychotherapy can be optimal for patients who seek a non-invasive solution. Or for patients who may not require medication.
The second type of treatment offered is medicine. Using a battery of assessments, the specialists at TMS Health Solutions can find the perfect medical treatment for the patient. Treatment can include antidepressants that can regulate mood with limited side effects. The staff’s medical doctors can easily adjust dosages to align with the response of the patient.
The third type of treatment available is TMS Therapy. This unique type of depression treatment is a non-invasive procedure which delivers electromagnetic pulses to the prefrontal cortex. This type of treatment is designed to stimulate the neurons which can help reduce depression in patients who do not respond to medication.
The fourth form of depression therapy is Electroconvulsive Therapy. This treatment passes electric currents through the brain. While this treatment does require general anesthesia, the procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis. However, in some cases, a hospital stay may be required.
TMS Health Solutions currently offers patients seven locations across the Northern California area, including TMS Therapy Union Square SF. In addition to the TMS Therapy Union Square SF location, there is another San Francisco area clinic near UCSF. Other TMS Health Solutions locations include clinics in Roseville, Sacramento, Oakland, El Dorado Hills, and Burlingame.
TMS Health Solutions is more than just a clinic. It is a team of dedicated medical professionals and staff specialized in helping people deal with this complex mental health issue. Clinical depression can seem like an overwhelming condition. However, TMS Health Solutions’ broad range of therapies is bringing new hope to thousands of patients every year.
