What is TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation)?

TMS is a treatment that uses MRI-strength electromagnetic pulses to stimulate the activity of neurons in underactive areas of your brain. As the nerve activity returns to normal, levels of neurotransmitters increase.

Many psychiatric disorders occur when your brain chemistry is unbalanced due to underactive neurons. TMS targets the brain regions associated with specific psychiatric disorders and boosts brain chemicals such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin to improve your symptoms.

The team at Neuro Wellness TMS Centers of America may use TMS in conjunction with medication or as a stand-alone treatment.

Is TMS better then traditional medications?

What Conditions Improve with TMS?

TMS is one of the most technologically advanced depression treatments available in the world. However, depression isn’t the only mental health condition that improves with TMS.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved TMS for patients with treatment-resistant depression, which means their symptoms didn’t improve with antidepressant medications. The FDA has also cleared TMS devices to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Additionally, ongoing studies show that TMS may improve other mental health disorders, including anxiety disorders, bipolar depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

What to Expect During TMS Treatment

During your TMS treatment, you stay awake and alert. The treatment is noninvasive and doesn’t require anesthesia or sedation.

You relax in the treatment chair, the device is placed against your head, and 3D imaging verifies it’s focused on the targeted area.

Then your provider turns the machine on, and the device sends the electromagnetic pulses through your scalp and into your brain. TMS only treats the targeted site without affecting the rest of your brain or body.

Most patients tolerate the treatment well. You’ll hear clicking sounds and may feel tapping. If the tapping is uncomfortable, your provider can make adjustments.

You may experience a mild headache or slight discomfort which can be treated with over-the-counter medications. You can go to work, drive, and participate in your usual daily activities immediately after your treatment.

How Many TMS Treatments Are Needed?

TMS therapy includes a series of treatments over about six weeks. Most patients experience a positive response to TMS by the fourth week of their treatment, but you may notice the difference sooner or later than that. Learn more about the typical TMS treatment.

Side Effects of TMS Therapy

With more than 10,000 treatments performed in clinical trials, the most common side effect associated with TMS therapy was mild-moderate scalp discomfort. Other common side effects included minor twitching around the eye, minor twitching of facial muscles, toothache, and mild-moderate headache. Side effects of TMS therapy usually resolve by end of each treatment session period. There is a rare risk of seizure associated with TMS therapy (0.1% per acute treatment course).
