About TMS Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS Therapy) is a proven treatment for depression when medication and/or talk-therapy may not be enough. TMS Therapy is a non-invasive, non-drug treatment that applies magnetic stimulation to areas of the brain known to regulate mood- areas known to be underactive in people diagnosed with depression. TMS Therapy can be used in conjunction with medication or as a stand-alone treatment.

    hi i had TMS therapy done last year after 40 treatments nothing happen at in all i went with a positive attitude and prayed daily it would help. well here i am still stuck with this misery of major depression and anxiety to which i know will eventually never get better i tried so many meds and theapies but to no success. i lik to know why some people succed and some dont i dont see enough research why people dont get results. the time i got my TMS done i never once got to see my doctor during the treatment until the end. he was never in the office or some where else. i feel dr did not care at all and i told him that. and i all i got was that he was always busy. i dont think i would ever recommend TMS to anyone unless they can prove more why some dont respond to treatment. i was one of the ones who did respond at all and eneded up more depressed. and never been able to tell why this happened.

      Dear Lupe: We can understand your disappointment in that you did not experience improvement with depression symptoms from your TMS Therapy. Because we are not your provider, we are not qualified to comment on your treatment or your treatment results. TMS protocol can vary among patients, and there are other variables involved as well, i.e. lifestyle, medications, comorbid diagnosis, other health issues, etc. However, we can tell you what clinical trials have shown. FDA Clinical Trials showed that 67% of those that underwent TMS Therapy responded to treatment with a 50% reduction in self-rated scores from standardized rating scales. For those individuals who do not receive benefit from TMS Therapy, there is no definitive answer in the medical literature as of yet. Just like anti-depressant medications, TMS Therapy aims to change brain chemistry by stimulating neurons in the areas of the brain that regulate mood. Just as anti-depressant medications do not benefit all patients, the same is true of TMS Therapy. Ongoing research and studies continue nationwide regarding all kinds of topics such as outcomes, developing protocols and new applications and indications for TMS Therapy.
