Depression is one of the deadliest sicknesses of today’s world. Many people suffer from it. Some of them don’t realise that they are suffering from depression, some of them know that they are depressed, but they remain helpless with it while some people unknowingly treat themselves out of depression by gradually adapting to various environments and situations.
Depression nowadays is most common among the youths, between 25-35yrs of age. Usually, most people don’t see it as an illness; rather they see it as a sad phase of life. They make themselves feel guilty, hopeless etc. A bit sensible person goes for treatment. The most common treatment is consulting psychiatrist and gets medications and advice.
Nowadays there is a new treatment for depression and other similar mental problems. It is called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS. TMS is a method of depression treatment which uses a pulsed magnetic stimulation of the nerves or neurons of the brain in the area which controls a person’s mood. It creates an electro magnetic current in the region of the brain which then makes the brain release neurotransmitters like serotonin which gets depleted when a person gets depressed. In simple words, neurotransmitters like serotonin are those who make a person see the happy side of things.
Deep TMS treatment and therapy or Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-drug and non-invasive yet a very effective treatment for depression patients. The process of this treatment is as follows:
Deep TMS treatment and therapy is the safest treatment with the least side effects for patients with treatment-resistant depression.
The technology for TMS treatment was initially developed in the year 2000 at NIH. In the year 2013, a company named Brainsway created an H1 coil which received FDA approval for use on patients with major depression. Many scientists and doctors came together to build up special TMS depression treatment centres throughout the globe for gaining expertise in the field and developing this revolutionary therapy treatment to its maximum level.
European and American countries are getting very advanced in this method of treatment. Asian countries are not far behind either. Some of the top TMS depression treatment centres are listed below
Thus, TMS as it is already now a proven and certified treatment for depression, it has become very popular and is advancing by leaps and bounds since the past decade.
Deep TMS treatment and therapy is now, the most preferred treatment in the Western part of the world. With time and advancements, the cost of this treatment is also getting lower so that as many as possible can avail this treatment therapy and get rid of depression. People now are getting aware of the fact that depression if not cured can be fatal too. With colleges and medical clinics promoting this therapy, it has become now a ray of hope for people who have lost hope for a cure in the level of consulting a psychiatrist.
TMS depression treatment centres are growing day by day. The team of experienced personnel in this field are expanding. The sole motive of these centres now is to expand all over the world and help those in need.
Developing countries like India too now have TMS centres, though they need more of such centres for now, even the few is way enough. One thing the centres now need to focus on is to spread the knowledge about this treatment. In this world of almost 6.5 billion population, hardly 20% know well about this treatment. Unless a person has knowledge about the treatment and knows its benefits, he/she won’t opt for the treatment.
Overall this therapy given by such clinical centres is a great revolutionary step in the world of medical sciences and betterment of mental health.
