NeuroStar TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is an innovative, non-invasive treatment designed to help alleviate symptoms of certain mental health conditions, particularly major depressive disorder. This therapy uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, potentially improving mood and cognitive function.
NeuroStar TMS is primarily for individuals who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from previous antidepressant medications or who are seeking a non-pharmacological therapy for their depression. It's an alternative treatment option for those seeking relief from persistent depressive symptoms.
