Explore Depression Treatment Options in Tigard
Although many Oregon residents and visitors appreciate all that Tigard has to offer, people coping with depression may struggle to enjoy their time in the city.
For people dealing with depression, the problem may be difficult for them to see and diagnose on their own as it can impact their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Depression can make it difficult to focus on everyday activities like work, school, and spending time with family members and friends. It can also cause people to feel irritable, annoyed, and frustrated without a clear understanding of why they experience these feelings. Depression can even lead people to isolate from others or consider self-harm or harming others.
At the first sign of depression symptoms, people should seek medical treatment. Then, they can meet with a doctor to explore medication, psychotherapy, and other therapy options to help them manage their depression symptoms.
There may be times when medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two helps depression patients reduce or eliminate their symptoms. Other times, however, medication and/or psychotherapy may provide only minimal relief of depression symptoms or no symptomatic relief. At this point, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may provide a viable therapy option for use in conjunction with or in lieu of other depression treatments.
What Is Tigard TMS Treatment?
Depression treatment in Tigard is available from Achieve TMS, the leading provider of TMS therapy in the United States. Our Beaverton office is conveniently located about 10 minutes from Tigard. It ensures that depression patients in Tigard can easily meet with our medical clinicians and technicians and undergo TMS as part of a personalized therapy program.
At first, depression patients consult with our clinicians, who learn about their depression symptoms and perform a medical evaluation. If our clinicians find that a patient is a strong candidate for TMS, they craft a custom treatment plan.
A TMS therapy plan generally requires a depression patient to visit our Tigard office five days a week for six weeks. Each TMS session takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, and a patient can leave our office immediately after treatment.
During a TMS session, an electromagnetic coil is attached to a patient’s head, near the left temple. Next, the coil sends gentle magnetic pulses to the patient’s brain to stimulate neural activity. At no point during TMS is the patient required to receive medication, anesthesia, or electrical shocks.
Following TMS, patients may experience only a slight headache or no symptoms. Patients do not experience dry mouth, nausea, or many other symptoms commonly associated with antidepressant medications after TMS.
