TMS Treatment in Oak Park: Here’s What You Need to Know

 Oak Park TMS treatment is a revolutionary therapy used to help patients dealing with treatment-resistant depression. TMS treatment may be performed in combination with medication, psychotherapy, or other depression therapies. Or, TMS may be completed in lieu of traditional depression therapy options.

For a patient who wants to undergo TMS treatment in Oak Park, a full evaluation is required. First, Achieve TMS’s expert medical clinicians meet with a patient, then evaluate different depression therapy options. If a patient qualifies for TMS, we then create a custom program.

A typical TMS therapy program consists of five sessions per week, conducted over the course of six weeks. Patients can visit our Agoura Hills facility for Oak Park TMS treatment, where each session takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

During an Oak Park TMS therapy session, a patient is seated comfortably and has a magnetic coil placed on the side of the head, near the left temple. Next, the patient receives magnetic pulses to the brain via the magnetic coil. The pulses are gently sent to the brain, and they create a current that affects the action of neurons in the brain associated with mood.

TMS treatment requires no anesthesia, electrical shocks, or medication, and patients can resume normal activities after a therapy session. TMS has few side effects; some patients report a slight headache for the first few sessions following treatment.
