Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a cutting-edge therapy used to treat the symptoms of depression.TMS is a non-invasive FDA approved outpatient therapy for Treatment Resistant Depression. It has helped thousands of patients who have not received adequate results from antidepressants and traditional methods.
How does TMS work?
TMS sends pulsatile magnetic currents to the surface of the head to target cortical neurons. This activation induces focal depolarization to areas that have been dormant or under-active because of a specific ailment, like depression. The stimulation affects the prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain responsible for mood regulation, and can help manage the hypothalamic pituitary axis, causing positive neuroendocrine effects.
