What is TMS?
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (RTMS) therapy is a viable alternative treatment to anti-depressant medications. Approved by the FDA, 2008, this non-invasive treatment does not require anesthesia or sedatives. The patient will be awake during the treatment.
No part of the procedure requires any medication. Hence, the patient can go about their day as usual, after the treatment. The therapy simply uses targeted magnetic fields in controlled pulses to stimulate specific nerve cells of the brain, which are involved in the mood control and depression.
Certain regions of the brain become less active while depressed. Providing this magnetic stimulation to the affected areas can help reactivate those regions. This will lead to easing depression symptoms and improve mood. Typical TMS treatment takes between 19-37 minutes, 5 days a week for 4-6 weeks.
