what we treat
Depression is a mental health disorder that is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities that were previously enjoyable. It can affect a person’s ability to function in daily life, impacting their relationships, work, and overall wellbeing.
Depression can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetic predisposition, environmental factors, and life events such as trauma, loss, or major life changes. Depression can also be a symptom of other medical conditions, such as chronic illness or substance use.
Over the years, numerous depression therapy treatments have become available for depression, given its status as a leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Psychotherapy, medication, lifestyle changes, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are all effective treatments for depression. TMS is an innovative and emerging treatment that is offered at Omi Psychiatry & TMS.
another type of depression
With an array of treatments for depression, it makes sense that some may not work for everyone. For those who are not satisfied by the effectiveness of antidepressant medications, they may seek an alternative form of treatment. One alternative approach is transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
NeuroStar® Advanced Therapy TMS is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic energy to stimulate areas of the brain that are connected to mood. This treatment has recently been FDA-cleared for patients whose depression has not been effectively treated by prior antidepressant medications.
