What are the benefits of TMS Therapy for Teenagers?

  • Non-Invasive: TMS is a non-invasive treatment, which means it doesn’t involve surgery or the use of medications that can have systemic side effects. This can be particularly appealing for teenagers and their families who are concerned about the potential risks and side effects of other treatment options.

  • Minimized Medication Use: TMS offers a safe alternative to medication for teenagers with chronic and significant depression. Some individuals and their families prefer TMS as a treatment option because it doesn’t involve the use of multiple psychotropic drugs, which can have unwanted side effects and raise concerns about addiction.

  • Outpatient Treatment: TMS treatments occur in our warm, friendly office environment.  Teens come to CC TMS for their treatment appointments with our master’s level, highly trained TMS Technicians.   Immediately following each visit, your teen can resume their daily activities, including school, extracurricular and work during the entire treatment course.

Does TMS Therapy help Depressed Teenagers?

Ongoing studies show that TMS is effective in reducing depressive symptoms and improving the overall well-being of teenagers who have not responded to other treatments. For those with treatment-resistant depression, TMS can offer hope for young people living with depression, allowing them to be successful at school, home and in the community.

Is TMS Therapy Safe for Teenagers?

Ongoing research shows that TMS treatment consistently demonstrates a strong safety and efficacy profile for teenagers and adolescents between the ages of 13 to 21with reports of minimal side effects in comparison to antidepressants. The most frequent complaint is headache, with less common scalp pain. Overall, the minimal occurrence of side effects along with the high response rate of TMS supports the use of this alternative approach to treat depression in children and adolescents. TMS for adolescents can be highly effective to reduce depressive symptoms and help teens live a healthy and productive life!
