Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) Therapy

The human brain is a complex organ that develops and changes as we learn new skills, grow in age, or experience trauma. Just like our bodies can be improved through positive lifestyle habits such as exercise and healthy eating, the same goes for your mind with mental exercises designed to increase memory performance. Whether you're looking for increased productivity at work or want to fortify against cognitive decline expected from aging, all these goals are possible with VitaMind Neurostimulation therapies.

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a new technique that uses mild electrical currents to stimulate the brain. The idea behind it is by increasing or decreasing activity in specific regions of the cerebral cortex, certain functions can be enhanced or suppressed. It's been proven to help those with depression, traumatic head injuries, and neuromuscular diseases. As the brain's electrical pathways are stimulated by currents, tDCS devices provide a much milder form of treatment. Unlike electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), which induces seizures in patients to relieve their symptoms, those using tDCS only feel minor sensations and maybe some scalp discomfort or a little tickle.

Our tDCS therapy to treat depression

TDCS is an experimental treatment for depression in patients who have not responded to other treatments. Doctors direct a mild electric current through two electrodes into specific parts of the patient's brain, increasing neural activity, and firing neurons. The process takes between 20 minutes and 30 minutes per session but only needs to be done once or twice a week because the effects last up to six weeks after each use.

In patients suffering from depression, those with fewer neurons firing in certain parts of their brains can find relief through treatments such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). For some, it is more appealing than taking antidepressant medication due to worries about possible side effects or just not liking how these drugs make them feel; however, many do see benefits by utilizing both methods together.

We know what it's like when your depression gets so bad, even getting up in the morning feels impossible; this is where mental health treatment can help get you back on track again. Even if situational anxiety has gotten so severe, causing panic attacks throughout your day. The doctors at VitaMind want to make it easy and effective for people with major depressive disorder or chronic pain disorders to find relief. This is why they offer unique therapy solutions that combine their effectiveness with ease of use. Our tDCS therapy is an advanced noninvasive brain stimulation technique that has been proven to be effective, and our patients experienced relief of symptoms and felt better after the treatments. If you're looking for a way out of the dark hole, try this therapy from our skilled and experienced team.

What to expect during tDCS treatment at VitaMind

Once your consultation is scheduled with VitaMind, our neurostimulation technician will discuss whether or not tDCS is an appropriate treatment for you - with your symptoms, history of treatments, and other factors in mind. After ensuring that there are no safety contradictions for tDCS, our team will work to develop an individualized course of therapy to meet your treatment demands. We'll make sure you're in good physical and mental health during and after your treatment sessions.

Treatment Sessions

Sessions might be short or as long as 40 minutes, depending on the protocols being used. You will stay awake during treatment and recline comfortably in a chair, a coil that looks like an infinity symbol will be held in place over your head during the treatment session and electricity passes through that creates magnetism which then generates currents in our brains. After you're done with the treatment session though, you may continue your daily life routine.

How does transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) feel like

When tDCS is applied to your scalp, you might feel a mild sensation of warmth or prickling. This sensation will go away when the stimulation stops and won't cause any pain; this can be decreased by using accessories that are high quality and taking care in setting up for use. For example, making sure the electrodes don’t come into contact with one another. The intensity should also not exceed an amount within the standards--a few milliamps at most--and sessions should last at least within 10 minutes or no more than 40 minutes each. The only problem with this treatment is that its effects depend on how tolerable one becomes to them because they are not always pleasant - which means individual results may vary depending on what's best for each person.
