TMS THERAPY IS FDA APPROVED TO TREATMENT DEPRESSION
TMS therapy was approved in 2008 by the FDA to manage treatment-resistant depression (TRD). TMS is a rapidly growing adjunctive treatment option for doctors and their patients for depression management. After completing TMS, some patients are able to safely decrease their reliance on medications, with supervision from their prescribing doctor.
SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN SYMPTOMS & REMISSION
Clinical research data and overall outcome results show:
1 in 2 of TMS patients achieved greater than 50% reduction in depression symptoms.
1 in 3 patients achieve complete remission success.
Approximately 70% maintained at least 1-year durability and sustained response from initial treatment.
Some patients were able to find success in gradually decreasing their medication dosage. Many who were weaned off medications prior to starting TMS were able to remain off mediations after completing TMS treatment.
TMS STIMULATES THE DLPFC BRAIN REGION IN A PULSATILE FASHION
TMS uses magnetic pulses to repeatedly activate the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) brain region. This improves activity within the limbic system and other parts of the brain. The limbic system is essential in mood, attention, memory, focus, motivation and other features.
