Brainsway TMS Therapy in Lake Bluff!
Are you struggling with depression and feeling like traditional treatments such as medication and therapy have not worked for you? If so, Brainsway TMS Therapy may be the solution you've been looking for.
What is Brainsway TMS Therapy?
Brainsway TMS Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses a magnetic coil to stimulate specific areas of the brain that are responsible for regulating mood. The magnetic field generated by the coil is able to penetrate the skull and stimulate the targeted brain regions. By increasing the activity in these areas, the therapy can help to alleviate depression symptoms.
Who is a Candidate?
Brainsway TMS Therapy is an option for people who have been diagnosed with depression and have not responded well to other treatments, such as medication or psychotherapy. It is not recommended for individuals who have certain types of metal implants in their head, such as cochlear implants or aneurysm clips.
Safe & FDA-Approved
Brainsway TMS Therapy is FDA approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder in adult patients who have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication treatment in the current episode. It is also FDA cleared for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in adult patients. The FDA has determined that Brainsway TMS Therapy is safe and effective for these indications.

A full course of Brainsway TMS Therapy usually involves 20-30 sessions over a period of 4-6 weeks. Each session lasts about 20 minutes, and patients typically come in for treatment 5 days a week.
During a Brainsway TMS treatment, you can expect the following:
You will be seated comfortably in a treatment chair. No sedation or anesthesia is required.
A Brainsway TMS technician will gently place the treatment coil on your head, which will emit magnetic pulses to stimulate specific areas of your brain.
You will hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your scalp during the treatment. This is normal and indicates that the magnetic pulses are being delivered. You will remain awake and alert during the entire treatment session, which typically lasts around 20 minutes.
The technician will adjust the intensity of the magnetic pulses as necessary to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the treatment.
You can immediately resume normal activities such as driving, working, and exercising. You may experience some mild scalp discomfort or headache immediately following the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
Most patients report no significant side effects and are able to resume their normal routines right after treatment.
It's important to note that the number of treatment sessions required may vary based on your individual needs and the severity of your symptoms. Your doctor or therapist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific condition.
