How can TMS Help with Depression?

Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a therapeutic approach to depression that uses magnetic devices to stimulate nerves in regions of the brain associated with mood regulation. During an average TMS session, a TMS practitioner uses an electromagnetic coil device to send a series of magnetic pulses to a patient’s brain to activate circuits that have become sluggish during the depression. Repeated application of the magnetic pulses primes the circuits to start functioning normally, alleviating the symptoms of depression.

Why is TMS better than Antidepressant medications?

Why treat every cell in the body when only the brain causes depression?There are many differences between these two treatments, but one of the primary distinctions lies in how each travels through your body to affect your brain activity. Antidepressants work by flowing through your bloodstream on the way to the brain. This journey through your bloodstream means they can affect other systems in your body. Depending on the medication and your unique physiology, there is a chance of side effects, such as nausea, weight gain, decreased libido, or others.TMS therapy avoids this by targeting a specific area of the brain with gentle magnetic pulses that work to re-activate the parts of the brain responsible for depression. The treatment process is highly focused and doesn’t require a chemical that has to enter the bloodstream. Because of this difference, TMS therapy is helpful if antidepressants aren’t working or are causing side effects that are difficult to tolerate.
