NeuroStar® TMS Therapy
While the exact cause of depression is unknown, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells. NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target critical areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
Treating Depression at the source
NeuroStar uses focused magnetic pulses (similar to an MRI), that revitalize inactive synapses in your brain.9 “Waking up” these connections can have a lasting effect on neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission from depression a reality for many people.
TMS has been shown to reduce the need for medication and improve symptoms associated with depression and other conditions, such as general anxiety disorder (GAD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Over 5.3 million NeuroStar Advanced TMS treatments have been performed in over 147,400 patients.
