Cody Regional Health is excited to introduce Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as one of their new services this Fall 2020! Their behavioral health clinic will be the only clinic offering this treatment in the Big Horn Basin Region. What is TMS? TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven't been effective according to Mayo Clinic. This treatment for depression involves delivering repetitive magnetic pulses, so it's called repetitive TMS or rTMS. Depression is a serious condition and is treatable, but for some of our patients, standard treatments aren’t effective. Repetitive TMS is typically used when standard treatments such as medications and talk therapy (psychotherapy) don't work. TMS can also be used to help treat PTSD, depression, OCD, schizophrenia, substance abuse disorders, anxiety disorders and autism. Come speak with their team about this treatment!
