Poway: “The City in the Country”

The city is located at the heart of San Diego County, and provides seamless access to freeways to Los Angeles, Riverside, and Orange counties. Plus, Poway has the lowest crime rate among incorporated cities in San Diego County since 1981, which makes it a top place for families.
When it comes to attractions and landmarks, there is no shortage of options for guests and residents alike to enjoy. A hike to Potato Chip Rock is a favorite outdoor activity in the city. It enables hikers of all ages to enjoy a distinct rock formation and a stunning view of the region. There are many bike trails and hiking paths across Poway as well.
Along with Potato Chip Rock and other outdoor venues, there is a wide range of historic sites to check out. Poway is also home to various gourmet eateries, an award-winning community theater, and an awe-inspiring golf course.
What to Expect During Poway TMS Treatment
Finding an effective treatment for depression can be a challenge, but TMS has proven to be beneficial with 70% experiencing response and 40% experiencing remission or absence of depression symptoms at treatment completion. . During TMS therapy, a patient receives magnetic pulses that stimulate neurons in a part of the brain responsible for mood. TMS therapy may help patients manage depression symptoms, as well as improve their quality of life.
At Achieve TMS, treatment is personalized for each patient. First, a patient is evaluated, and our medical clinicians learn about their symptoms. If our clinicians believe a patient may benefit from TMS, we will develop a custom treatment plan. We also educate our patients about TMS treatment in Poway so that they can establish realistic expectations.
TMS sessions are conducted daily over the course of six weeks. Each therapy session lasts approximately 20 minutes and is completed at the Rancho Bernardo center. Poway patients come to our office five times a week, and they can resume their daily activities immediately after each session.
When TMS therapy is performed at the Rancho Bernardo center, a magnetic coil is placed on the patient’s head, near the left temple. This coil sends magnetic pulses to the brain, thereby stimulating neural activity in underactive regions of the brain that are responsible for mood regulation.
While TMS treatments are performed, a patient may use antidepressant medication, psychotherapy, or other mood disorder therapies to achieve their desired results. Alternatively, a patient may undergo TMS on its own to help manage mood disorder symptoms.
