TMS is Painless
Patients read, watch TV, or just relax during treatments. No drugs or painkillers are used so patients can drive themselves to and from treatments.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) helps "revive" parts of the brain that show "low activity" found in disorders such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.
How TMS Works
Patients with depression show inactivity in some parts of the brain. Neurons can shut down and stop making the chemicals needed to transmit messages to other neurons.
Chemicals made in the nerve cell body ride on vesicles across the synaptic cleft to connect with receptors on the other side. If the nerve impulse does not connect, the message stops right there.
