At Oasis TMS, we understand the immense sacrifices our brave veterans have made in service to our country. While these heroes have faced numerous challenges on the battlefield, the mental health battle against depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be just as daunting. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing cutting-edge Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy to help veterans regain control of their lives and find lasting relief.
The Invisible Wounds of Service
The mental health of our veterans is a critical issue that demands attention and care. Many veterans experience depression, anxiety, and PTSD as a result of their service. Traditional treatments like medication and therapy can be helpful, but they may not provide the desired relief for everyone. That’s where TMS therapy comes in.
What is TMS Therapy?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate specific regions of the brain associated with mood regulation. TMS therapy is FDA-approved, safe, and proven effective in treating depression and PTSD. With minimal side effects and no need for anesthesia or sedation, TMS therapy is an excellent alternative for veterans seeking a more targeted, less intrusive treatment option.
How TMS Therapy Helps Veterans
Our TMS therapy program is specifically tailored to address the unique needs of veterans. We work closely with each individual to develop a personalized treatment plan designed to reduce symptoms of depression and PTSD. Some of the benefits our veteran patients have experienced with TMS therapy include:
- Significant reduction in depressive symptoms
- Decreased anxiety and improved mood
- Better sleep and increased energy
- Enhanced focus and cognitive function
- Renewed sense of hope and purpose
What to Expect During TMS Treatment
We understand that trying a new treatment can be both exciting and daunting. To help you feel more comfortable, we’ve outlined key steps to get started:
- Initial Consultation: Before starting TMS therapy, you’ll meet with one of our experienced mental health professionals for a comprehensive evaluation. This will help us determine if TMS is the right treatment option for you and develop a personalized treatment plan.
- Treatment Preparation: On your first TMS therapy session, our skilled TMS technician will take measurements to accurately position the TMS coil on your head. This ensures that the magnetic pulses target the precise area of the brain responsible for mood regulation.
- TMS Session: During each TMS session, you’ll be seated comfortably in a treatment chair, fully awake and alert. The TMS technician will place the coil gently on your head, and the treatment will begin. You may hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your scalp as the magnetic pulses are delivered. Each session typically lasts between 20 to 40 minutes
- Minimal Side Effects: TMS therapy is well-tolerated by most patients, with few and mild side effects. The most common side effects are temporary scalp discomfort or mild headaches, which usually subside after the first few sessions. There is no need for anesthesia or sedation, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after each session.
- Treatment Schedule: A typical TMS therapy course consists of 5 sessions per week for 4 to 6 weeks, followed by a tapering period. However, this schedule may vary depending on your individual needs and response to treatment. Our team will closely monitor your progress and make adjustments as necessary to ensure optimal results.
- Progress Tracking: Throughout your TMS treatment journey, we’ll assess your symptoms and response to therapy regularly. This allows us to gauge your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan, ensuring the best possible outcomes.
- Long-lasting Relief: Many patients experience significant improvements in their depression or PTSD symptoms during TMS therapy, with benefits often lasting for months or even years. Our team will work with you to develop a post-treatment plan to help maintain your newfound well-being.
We’re committed to providing a comfortable and supportive environment for our veteran patients as they embark on their TMS treatment journey. Our experienced team will be with you every step of the way, helping you achieve a better quality of life and lasting relief from the challenges of depression and PTSD.
