This is one of our favorite little TMS testimonials.
We like it for several reasons including this.
About my 5th week of therapy, I started to feel a difference.
Kim didn’t feel better in the 1st week, or the 2nd. She started to feel better in her 5th week of treatment with the NeuroStar TMS Therapy System.
Sometimes TMS patients begin to feel a lot better quickly, even within the first week or so of the therapy, but it’s not at all unusual for a patient to notice a big change in the 4th week of treatment, and nothing much before then. Occasionally someone will notice a huge improvement a week or two after the complete course of treatment.
When TMS works rapidly for some people that’s great. When it works slowly for others that’s great too.
Magnetic stimulation therapy starts a process in your brain. The process percolates even after the course of therapy is completed.
Not everyone qualifies for TMS. No treatment – not even TMS – is 100% effective for everyone.
Researchers and psychiatrists are searching for the perfect, universal cure, and would love to announce tomorrow that we’ve found it. In the meantime, we don’t have all the answers, but we have some of them, and we’re excited, because the answers we have now are so much better than their predecessors. We’re getting better at effectively treating our patients.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a paradigm shift in the treatment of depression.
Whether beneficial results occur rapidly or slowly we’re delighted when we see the amazing benefits which happen in most of our TMS patients, and they are, too, of course, and we’re doing everything we can to increase the odds of successful treatment in every person we treat.
