What is TMS Therapy?

TMS Therapy (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is a viable treatment that uses MRI strength pulses to treat the underlying causes of mood disorders including depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, etc. Medication can only cure in short term, which simply cures symptoms, but TMS Treatment focuses on the root of the problem: the brain’s disrupted neural networks.

TMS therapies induce positive brain activity to reconnect these networks during outpatient, non-invasive sessions, resulting in long-term recovery from depression and other mood disorders.

How does it work?

Doctors target the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex during TMS treatment for depression. Memory, mood regulation, and conflict resolution are among the cognitive activities controlled by this area of the brain. People with dysregulation may find it difficult to control their emotions, make decisions, or think coherently.

Magnetic pulses are thought to modify how nerve cells fire in this area of the brain, according to researchers. As a result, it may help with depression symptoms. Furthermore, activation of the left and right sides of the brain has distinct consequences. Low-frequency stimulation on the right side, according to some researchers, is more helpful than high-frequency stimulation on the left side in treating depression.

TMS’s antidepressant impact can wear off with time, even though most people respond favorably to it.

TMS Therapy’s Advantages

• It increases the ability to concentrate, peaceful sleep, enhanced cognition, and improved memory.

• You will return to normal activities right away.

• The average treatment session lasts about 30 minutes. That’s less time than a typical exercise or yoga session.

• TMS can be used in conjunction with other treatments such as therapy, nutrition, or medicine.

• It will help you to return to your life as soon as possible with minimum short-term adverse effects.

Depending on the equipment and clinical protocol employed, each session can take anywhere from 20 to 50 minutes. Patients may check in with a technician or doctor momentarily before beginning the stimulation process. Using the motor cortex as a “landmark” in the brain, the technician will determine the optimal stimulation intensity and anatomical target.

The team can establish where to best place the stimulation coil in relation to that individual’s brain and how intensely it must “fire” in order to generate optimal stimulation by first targeting this portion of the brain.

The dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the brain target with the most evidence of clinical success and an area believed to be involved in depression, is then identified using calculations. Though one session may be enough to improve the brain’s excitability level, relief usually doesn’t appear until the third, fourth, fifth, or even sixth week of treatment.
