It's a non-invasive, non-medication depression treatment for patients have not found relief from antidepressant drugs. Jonathan Horey , MD, Chief Medical Officer for Active Recovery TMS, joined us to share why transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy is an attractive option for those seeking alternative answers to the question of how to fight depression.
Cleared by the FDA, TMS is a process in which magnets are used to stimulate a specific area of the brain associated with controlling mood, promoting brain cell activity in the area. After repeated treatments, this stimulation can result in a decrease in depressive symptoms. Among Active Recovery TMS patients, more than 79% experienced a significant improvement in symptoms, and over one-third achieved control of their depression, becoming free from symptoms.
TMS is covered by most commercial insurance carries in addition to the Oregon Health Plan and the Veteran's Administration's Tri-Care/Tri-West. Active Recovery TMS is the only TMS clinic in the area to accept Medicare.
