ABOUT TMS THERAPY
Why is TMS such an exciting clinical breakthrough for depression?
TMS is an FDA-approved treatment catered to those experiencing episodes of depression that haven’t had a satisfying response to medication or who suffer from unbearable side effects TMS, a relatively new treatment, offers several unique advantages over medication.
Firstly, TMS is an intervention that uses electro-magnetic stimulation rather than chemical stimulation of brain cells. Which means…
Secondly, TMS has little to no side effects at all when compared to drug therapy.
Thirdly, unlike antidepressants, TMS has unprecedented accuracy when targeting depression because it targets only the area of the brain where depression occurs.
TMS Therapy uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate the area of the brain that is thought to function abnormally in patients with depression. The magnetic field produces an electric current in the brain that stimulates the brain cells (neurons). This results in changes that are thought to be beneficial in the treatment of depression.
