What is TMS Therapy?
TMS Therapy is an FDA approved treatment for treatment refractory depression. It has also been used in the treatment of Pain, Anxiety, Migraines, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders and other illnesses where the use of medication has not been as effective as desired.
TMS has very minimal negative effects on your body and doesn’t upend your daily schedule. There are no surgeries and TMS does not require any sedation. TMS is administered in the TMS prescribing psychiatrist office. In fact, all a patient has to do is sit in a chair and relax.
Nothing enters your bloodstream. There are no medications administered. There is no need for medications to circulate throughout the body, therefore TMS does not impair your cognitive abilities. TMS is perhaps the least intrusive form of depression therapy available.
