NeuroStar TMS Therapy for Depression Now Available at TMS Center of Long Island

NeuroStar TMS therapy is now available as that other option for those who felt there was no hope before.

Jan. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- Merrick, New York – United States –  TMS Center of Long Island announced this morning that they would be offering NeuroStar TMS therapy as one of their alternative treatments for depression Long Island residents can take advantage of. The non-invasive, non-systemic FDA-approved treatment is currently available at their Merrick, Long Island facility along with more traditional psychiatric care.

“NeuroStar TMS therapy is a viable and FDA-approved alternative to surgical or pharmaceutical solutions offered in the past for the treatment of depression,” said a company spokesperson. “There are many patients who are not comfortable with the side effects of anti-depressant prescription medication. This is one method that can be used on patients who failed to benefit from prior antidepressant medications and can be tried to avoid the need for them.”

The recommended treatment for a four week period with NeuroStar TMS Therapy is forty minutes per day. It involves the application of a series of MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in an area of the brain that is linked to depression. These pulses penetrate the skull without distortion of any kind and create small electrical charges that cause neurons to fire, helping to restore the balance of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine, the imbalance of which is believed to be one of the causes of depression.  

“The human brain is still a mystery in a lot of ways but it is believed that depression may be caused by a combination of chemical imbalance and genetic predisposition,” said our company spokesperson. “The latter is something we can’t control, but the former is a treatable condition that this NeuroStar TMS Long Island therapy could be the solution for. At the very least it provides another option to those that have been struggling.”

The depression resistant treatment Long Island residents have been offered until now has been basically non-existent. If the drugs and therapy don’t work there just hasn’t been another alternative in the past. NeuroStar TMS therapy is now available as that other option for those who felt there was no hope before.
