Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an effective new depression treatment without medication. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of Major Depression. Cleared for use by the FDA in October 2008, TMS is a non-invasive, non-systemic treatment that utilizes MRI strength magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain known to be underactive in depression. TMS is a powerfully effective and safe treatment for Major Depression. TMS is non-systemic (not through the whole body like medication) and non-invasive (not entering the body). As a result, patients’ lives continue as normal during treatment.
How Does TMS Therapy Work?
TMS Therapy works by stimulating neurons in the prefrontal cortex. The stimulated neurons then communicate with deeper brain neurons to restore normal functioning and filters out to regions of the brain involved with mood. The illustration below shows a simplified version of how this works in the brain.
TMS Therapy (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy) has shown to be very successful for overcoming treatment-resistant depression and addiction without prescription medications.
