dTMS deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

dTMS, or deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is a relatively new method of treatment for those living with treatment-resistant depression, trauma, and anxiety disorders. It’s FDA approved for depression & OCD and promotes promising results in research trials for PTSD and addiction.

A Non-Invasive Approach to Treating Mental Health Issues

deep TMS is a revolutionary tool in treating a variety of mental health issues, especially treatment-resistant depression. It’s a great additional asset to traditional treatments like psychiatric medications and therapy as it’s non-invasive and requires no downtime. Most patients don’t experience any adverse side effects and experience symptom relief in as little as one treatment session.

What Exactly is deep TMS?

Essentially, deep TMS is a therapeutic approach that utilizes a machine in order to stimulate areas of the brain associated with being responsible for debilitating symptoms of various mental health conditions. Basically, after a brain map (using an EEG) that allows mental health specialists to identify areas of the brain that may not be functioning up to par, the TMS machine is hooked up and placed onto and around a patient’s scalp. Then, the machine is turned on in order to activate a number of magnetic coils that work to send magnetic pulses through the scalp and into the brain. The result is stimulating specific areas of the brain that are negatively affected by imbalances of brain activity that can lead to the development of a number of mental health symptoms.

Who Can deep TMS Therapy Help?

Since brain activity is responsible for a variety of mental health side effects, deep TMS can help individuals diagnosed across a wide range of mental health and cognitive issues. Some of the diagnoses that TMS is known to help assist with include:

  • Autism
  • Treatment-resistant depression
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Conditions that are associated with chronic pain (fibromyalgia, MS, etc.)
  • Schizophrenia and other personality disorders
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Degenerative memory issues (dementia)
An Additional Tool for Treatment Planning

Since TMS is non-invasive and there are virtually no side effects from this treatment, it’s a great tool to add to already ongoing treatment initiatives. It provides an extra opportunity for the long-term management of mental, emotional, and physical issues that are associated with health. If you’re looking for an alternative treatment approach that’s backed by the FDA and deemed both successful and safe, trying Deep TMS is right for you.
