TMS Health Solutions Finds Your Path to Wellness Through Treating Clinical Depression

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people living with mental illness around the world exceeds 450 million. As a result, WHO, an agency of the United Nations tasked with leading global health responses, has designated depression as an international public health priority.

The U.S. health watchdog agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reports that upwards of 17% of adults will experience some form of depression during their life. The more severe cases of depression are diagnosed as major depressive disorder (MDD). Although MDD is often difficult to diagnose, what is even more frustrating is the lack of successful, mainstream treatment options.

Traditional depression treatments include psychotherapy and prescription drugs. But patients with more severe cases of depression, like MDD, often fail to respond to these treatments, leading to treatment-resistant depression (TRD).

Treating Treatment-Resistant Clinical Depression

TMS Health Solutions encourages those with treatment-resistant depression to consider alternative, non-invasive therapies shown to have a positive impact on depressive symptoms, such as:

  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), an FDA-approved therapy technique to treat MDD after traditional methods have proven unsuccessful. TMS is both safe and effective.
  • Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), a brain nerve stimulation technique that is most often used to treat patients with major depression or bipolar disorder when traditional therapies have proven to be ineffective.

TMS Health Solutions works with patients by customizing their treatment. TMS therapy may be used by itself or in combination with traditional treatments.

Anxiety, depression and other mental health afflictions confuse, overwhelm and cause painful conditions for the patient seeking treatment. The good news is that more and more advanced and alternative treatments have become available.

The most prudent step in relieving the symptoms of depression begins by educating the patient - and the patient’s family)- about the facts regarding depression and all potential treatments. Possible therapies to treat depression can be both non-invasive and invasive, such as an implanted device to receive programmed electrical stimulation. Invasive therapies – brain surgery - should be a last resort and only selected when all other options are exhausted.

Depression Is More Than Just Sadness

If you believe that you or someone you know may have clinical depression, reach out to a professional regarding symptoms and treatments. For additional information, the professionals at TMS Health Solutions are available to discuss your case and explain possible clinical depression treatments.

Symptoms of clinical depression vary widely but typically include these common indicators:

  • Social isolation

Your Path to Wellness

Given the complexity of clinical depression and the proliferation of treatment-resistant depression cases, medical practitioners must have a clear concept as to the importance of diagnosing the disorder quickly, identifying those who fail to respond to traditional treatments, and remaining current with what to offer as alternative non-invasive interventions.

The easiest and fastest way to discover the available treatment options is to contact TMS Health Solutions, or other medical practitioners who can explain and clarify the available options for treatment, the costs to expect for the treatment and how to manage logistical considerations.
