BEAVERTON, Ore., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Achieve TMS, the largest and most experienced provider of deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) for the treatment of depression, has opened a second state-of-the-art center in the greater Portland area, this one in Beaverton, to help treat local residents who have major depressive disorder or who are unable or unwilling to take medication. The new center opened in late summer. Localized and highly effective deep TMS (dTMS) treatments are approved by the FDA and covered by nearly every major commercial insurance carrier in the U.S.
"With 1 in 6 Americans suffering from depression there is a huge need for treatments that are proven to make a difference in the battle against this debilitating disease," said Allison Hadley, MD, medical director of Achieve TMS Oregon. "Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is known to be an effective tool in the battle. Patients and their families are looking for an effective way to move away from depression into a place where lives are productive, balanced, healthy and well integrated. TMS is a vital tool that helps facilitate healing and we have established a commitment to working in partnership with psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists in the local Beaverton area to expand access to this treatment option."
Deep TMS works by administering magnetic pulses through an H-coil on the scalp that is targeted to the mood center of the brain. The magnetic fields induce electrical currents that stimulate underactive neurons, helping to reset brain chemistry, resulting in improved sleep, concentration and overall mood. It is safe, non-invasive and highly effective for those who are treatment resistant and/or have experienced no relief from medication.
In more than 60 clinical studies globally, dTMS has consistently demonstrated statistically significant response and remission rates. The therapy is well tolerated by patients, causing no adverse effects. Treatment sessions are prescribed 5 days per week for 4-6 weeks, with each session lasting 20 minutes. There is no sedation involved, and no down time.
The new Achieve TMS Center in Beaverton is located at 1675 S.W. Marlow Avenue Suite 206.
Achieve TMS welcomes inquiries about the dTMS treatment and is scheduling complimentary consultations and appointments for Beaverton at this time. For more information please contact Achieve TMS at (877) 391-7019 or visit www.achievetms.com.
