Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS)
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS):
What is TMS Therapy?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a breakthrough of non pharmacological treatment for patients who continue to experience depressive symptoms despite psychotherapy and anti-depressant treatment or those who are unable to tolerate anti-depressant medications because of the side effects. TMS has been shown to produce changes in neuronal activity in regions of the brain implicated in mood regulation, such as the prefrontal cortex. As each magnetic pulse passes through the skull and into the brain, this induces brief activity of brain cells underlying the treatment coil.
TMS uses a magnetic field to stimulate nerve cells in the brain which reduces depression. TMS can treat depression without having to take any medication.
