Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Take back your life from depression with transformational treatment: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) coming soon to Springfield Psychological.

Springfield Psychological has partnered with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy to offer cutting edge treatment to provide Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to adults who suffer from Major Depression and have failed to receive satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant medication. In 2008, the Federal Drug Administration cleared the use of TMS, a non-drug, non-invasive treatment, that uses magnetic pulses to stimulate targeted areas of the brain to assist in safely and effectively treating adult patients suffering from Major Depression. NeuroStar TMS helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field like that of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. TMS uses a precise magnetic pulse that targets the treatment exactly where it needs to be. NeuroStar is not electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and does not have the same mechanism as ECT. NeuroStar TMS has demonstrated significant, long- lasting improvement in patients with depression who have not traditionally benefited from the use of antidepressant medications and serves as the #1 TMS choice for doctors.
