Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS Therapy
in Highland Hills, OH

What is TMS Therapy?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven’t been effective. During a TMS therapy session, an electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse to your brain that stimulates nerve cells involved in mood control and depression.

Our TMS Therapy Process

TMS is performed on an outpatient basis and requires a series of treatment sessions to be effective. Generally, sessions are carried out daily, five times a week for four to six weeks.

Mapping
To determine the correct level of stimulation for your individual case, your doctor will do what’s called “mapping,” or producing multiple painless electromagnetic pulses to find your motor threshold. This creates a reference point that will be used and adjusted during your course of treatment.
Treatment Sessions
After your threshold has been set, subsequent sessions will consist of a simple 20-minute procedure. Your doctor will connect the TMS therapy machine while you’re resting comfortably with ear plugs. You may hear some clicking sounds and feel tapping on your forehead during treatment.
After Treatment
Once treatment is over, you may feel some slight scalp discomfort. Between treatments you can expect to work, drive and generally return to your normal daily activities.
