What is Neurostar Treatment ? – Highland Care Center

Magnetic fields are used in neurostar treatment to activate brain nerve cells. Targeting particular brain regions that are underactive in people with depression and other mental health conditions is the main objective.

How It Operates
Magnetic Pulses: A device that produces magnetic pulses is used in Neurostar TMS therapy. These pulses have resemblance to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) pulses.
Targeted Stimulation: The patient's scalp is where the device is placed, usually in close proximity to the forehead. The prefrontal cortex, a part of the brain linked to mood control, is the target of the magnetic pulses.
Neural Activation: The magnetic pulses cause the prefrontal cortex's nerve cells to fire, which helps to activate parts of the brain that may be underactive in individuals with depression. This stimulation can lead to improved mood and reduced symptoms of depression over time.

First Consultation: To ascertain whether TMS therapy is suitable for the patient, a psychiatrist or other licensed mental health expert will conduct a comprehensive evaluation at the start of the process.
Treatment Sessions: Over the course of four to six weeks, a standard course of Neurostar TMS therapy entails daily sessions (five times a week). A session lasts between twenty and forty minutes.
Painless and Non-Invasive: No anesthesia is needed for this procedure, which is non-invasive. Throughout the sessions, the patients stay awake and conscious.
An important development in the management of depression and other mental health issues is neurostar TMS therapy. It provides patients who have not responded to conventional treatments with a safe, non-invasive, and effective alternative.
