TMS Therapy Treatment
TMS Therapy (TransCranial Magnetic Stimulation) is a new, non-invasive treatment for depression. Some people suffering with depression do not respond to prescribed medications. And the long term side effects of taking anti-depressants can cause serious complications. TMS Therapy has been demonstrated to be a very effective new treatment for depression and other issues.
TMS Therapy is a treatment that can be performed in a psychiatrist’s office, under their supervision, using a medical device called the TMS Therapy system. TMS is designed to stimulate the prefrontal cortex portion of the brain. The prefrontal cortex regulates a person’s mood. It also controls a person’s limbic system where the desire for pleasures, such as food, sex, alcohol and drug use, is located.
TMS stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation. It is a noninvasive method of exciting the neurons in the brain. Weak electric currents are induced in the tissue by rapidly changing magnetic fields. This way, brain activity can be triggered with minimal discomfort. It is a treatment tool for various psychiatric conditions including major depression, anxiety and addiction.
TMS Therapy is an appropriate treatment option for adult patients with Major Depressive Disorder who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from one prior antidepressant medication at or above the minimal effective dose and duration in the current episode.
TMS Therapy is a new treatment cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant treatment.
