Depression Therapy Options in North Plains
Along with its proximity to the attractions and landmarks of Portland, North Plains residents won’t have to go far to find depression therapy options, either.
Depression is a problem that affects people in North Plains and other cities and towns across the United States. Yet, the mood disorder often goes undiagnosed and untreated, as many people try to ignore the symptoms associated with it or believe these symptoms will disappear on their own.
The symptoms of depression include sadness, anxiety, restlessness, agitation, and slowed thinking. Additionally, people coping with depression may experience headaches, body pain, and other physical issues. Depression may also cause people to feel overwhelmed by everyday life, to the point where they may consider harming themselves or others.
Depression symptoms range in terms of severity, and they can occur without notice. To manage these symptoms, people should consult with a doctor. That way, they can find out if they qualify for traditional depression treatments like psychotherapy and antidepressant medications. They may even consider transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to help reduce or relieve their depression symptoms.
How Does North Plains TMS Treatment Work?
Achieve TMS is proud to offer TMS therapy at our Beaverton office, which is located about 20 minutes from North Plains. Here, patients can gain insights into our treatment program and undergo therapy sessions.
Our medical clinicians evaluate a patient to determine if TMS can be used to help them alleviate their depression symptoms. If a patient is eligible for this form of depression treatment, a custom treatment plan is developed. The plan is discussed with the patient, and we respond to any concerns or questions.
Before TMS treatment begins, we schedule therapy sessions with our patient. A session takes 20 minutes to complete, and sessions are held five days a week for six weeks at our Beaverton office.
During TMS, a patient receives magnetic pulses gently sent to the brain via an electromagnetic coil. The pulses stimulate neural activity in the portion of the patient’s brain responsible, which may help minimize their depression symptoms.
Patients won’t have to worry about downtime after a TMS session. Upon completion of a treatment, a patient can leave our office and return to their everyday activities right away.
TMS does not cause nausea, vomiting, or other side effects frequently associated with antidepressant medication. Patients may report only a slight headache or minor discomfort following TMS. Most patients report no side effects after a TMS session.
