Understanding Depression vs. Sadness
Feeling sad and melancholy can happen to any of us. After all, no one is immune to having a bad day! Most of the time sadness comes and goes as part of our normal human emotions. For some, the sadness can set in and take hold. It’s a feeling that you can’t shake.
Lingering sadness is just one of the indications of Major Depression. If you are experiencing depression symptoms for the first time, your doctor might prescribe medication or therapy. Fortunately, many experience relief from these treatments but
what about the 30% of people who still suffer? In these cases, we turn to TMS Therapy for renewed hope!
TMS Therapy is often considered a second-line treatment for depression. When people use the phrase “treatment-resistant depression”, it usually implicates that first-line treatments (medication and therapy) didn’t work or caused unwanted side effects. We see many examples of successful second-line treatments in life-threatening diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
In fact, the advancement of modern medicine over the years has helped provide renewed hope and healing in many ways.
Second-line and alternative treatments continue to help improve outcomes and quality of life for patients around the world and for that, we’re thankful.
