Pearl Health Clinic uses NeuroStar’s patented and clinically proven TMS Therapy® (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). It is an FDA approved treatment for individuals suffering from depression. This treatment has given tens of thousands of patients relief and remission from their debilitating and life-robbing depression symptoms. For many patients, depression symptoms significantly improved or went away after 4 to 6 weeks of treatment with NeuroStar TMS Therapy.
Response rates to TMS exceed that of medication in treatment resistant patients.
- The evidence for the clinical efficacy of TMS in the treatment of depression is considerable, spanning more than 30 controlled clinical research studies, including NIMH sponsored studies.
- Easily tolerated. The most common side effect is mild scalp pain or discomfort.
- Non-invasive and non-systemic.
- No anesthesia or sedation.
- No adverse effects on memory.
- No change in daily activities.
- Adopted by insurers covering 216 million US lives.
NeuroStar uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. It is not ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
While the exact cause of depression is not known, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
- Therapy sessions are conducted in your doctor’s office
- You can return to normal activities right away
- You are awake during treatment
- There are no negative effects on memory or sleep
- It’s covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Tricare
With more than one million treatments performed, this novel treatment approach to achieving remission is bringing new hope to people every day.
Candidates for our program must follow the direction of their physician and other treatment providers. The doctor and other clinicians will be able to determine the level of care needed for a person to become sober and prevent relapse. Regular urinalysis tests are performed in order to both monitor compliance to the program and also to prevent medical concerns for the participant.
Our primary concern is the well-being of the participant, and when an individual fails to comply with treatment, it may pose a risk to their health and safety.
As such, there may be an occasion to discharge an individual from our program or to refer them to another provider or facility that may better meet their individual needs for recovery.
