What is TMS?
Benefits of TMS - Video
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of depression.
As technology advances researchers are finding more ways to treat illnesses in the brain without medications.
During the TMS procedure, the patient wears a padded helmet which activates the magnetic pulses. These repeated magnetic wave pulses reach the areas of the brain which are affected by the patient’s particular illness.
How it works
Magnetic impulses are supplied through the scalp using an electromagnetic device that is placed on the head, activating the brain’s nerve cells in the regions affected by depression. TMS in Queens provides an alternative and safe treatment that is effective on its own or in conjunction with medicine and/or therapy. For those who are not ideal candidates for antidepressants or who have only experienced modest gains with medication, TMS may be a good choice. Temporary side effects may include scalp sensations or a headache, which can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
