Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy is a non-invasive and unique treatment process that was created to alleviate symptoms related to mental health conditions that you may be dealing with.
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation is an FDA-cleared therapy that can help treat the major depressive disorder, as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder. During your deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy, we will activate an electromagnetic field which is activated by a coil technology that is held within a helmet apparatus that is fitted over your head.
The helmet will safely and effectively send out magnetic pulses which are able to directly reach the broader, and deeper brain structures, successfully influencing neural activity.
This non-invasive therapy has two specific features that allow this technology to reach the brain’s deeper structures which directly helps to prevent a decrease in the magnetic field’s intensity. Finally, it also has the ability to avoid any need for an increase in intensity which allows deep transcranial magnetic stimulation to broaden the scope of the electromagnetic field while reaching more relevant brain structures and regions while continuing to stay at a safe level of activation.
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy provides many benefits and can help with:
Depression is one of the primarily treated conditions that deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy is used.
• Obsessive-compulsive disorder
If you haven’t responded to medication for your obsessive-compulsive disorder, then deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy can help improve the symptoms.
Psychological disorders including anxiety can be eased with deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy.
• Post-traumatic stress disorder
The prefrontal cortex can be targeted with transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy which can be effective for individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
• Stroke rehabilitation
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy can promote motor recovery, as well as improve dysphagia, by stimulating your motor cortex.
Individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia can see many benefits with deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy, as it targets the temporoparietal cortex which can cause auditory hallucinations
• Parkinson’s disease
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation is able to normalize the connection between certain areas of the brain which are often involved with gait freezing.
• Alzheimer’s disease
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation may help with Alzheimer’s disease by altering the neural connections which are involved with learning and memory.
• Chronic pain
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation stimulated the motor cortex and controls neurotransmitters that are linked to pain, meaning this therapy can improve chronic pain including fibromyalgia.
• Nicotine addiction
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation reduces nicotine craves by targeting the prefrontal cortex.
• Multiple sclerosis
With deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy working on the motor cortex of individuals with multiple sclerosis, it was found to help decrease spasticity.
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy is often able to help relieve symptoms of mental health conditions for individuals who are struggling to find relief through other therapies. A few of the conditions that deep transcranial magnetic stimulation can help with include all of the listed health disorders above.
