FAIRBANKS, Alaska (PRWEB) March 14, 2019
TMS Center of Alaska by Achieve TMS, the nation’s most experienced provider of deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), is opening a new state-of-the-art depression treatment center on Monday March 18 in Fairbanks (http://www.achievetms.com/fairbanks). This will be the only deep TMS treatment center in Fairbanks.
“With lifetime prevalence of depression in the United States thought to be approximately 17% and a tragic rise in national suicide rates, there is a great need for effective treatments that are proven to make a difference in the battle against this debilitating disease”, said Robert Long MD, medical director of TMS Center of Alaska. “Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (d-TMS) is approved by the FDA and well-documented as an effective tool. Deep TMS helps facilitate recovery and healing and we are committed to working with local psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists to expand access to this treatment option throughout the Fairbanks area."
TMS works by administering magnetic pulses through a coil on the scalp that targets neural activity in and around the mood center of the brain. The magnetic fields induce electrical currents that stimulate under-active neurons, helping to reset brain chemistry, resulting in improved sleep, concentration and overall mood. Treatment is safe, non-invasive and highly effective for those who are treatment resistant and/or have experienced little or no relief from medication.
In more than 60 clinical studies worldwide, TMS has consistently demonstrated statistically significant response and remission rates. The therapy is well tolerated by patients, causing no adverse effects. Treatment sessions are prescribed five days per week for six weeks, with each session lasting 20 minutes. There is no sedation involved, no significant side effects and no down time.
Achieve TMS Center of Alaska in Fairbanks is located at 1867 Airport Way, Suite 220. For more information or to arrange a complimentary consultation please contact info(at)tmscenterofalaska.com, call 907-205-5779 or visit http://www.achievetms.com/fairbanks.
