Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy in New Jersey
Individuals suffering from treatment-resistant depression now have an exciting alternative: transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy, also known as TMS. This non-invasive and drug-free treatment stimulates the brain region associated with depression directly and has been found to result in significant improvement of depression symptoms. Princeton Medical Institute is proud to offer this revolutionary treatment to New Jersey residents.
How does TMS therapy work?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy utilizes a proprietary H7-coil that stimulates nerve cells in the brain via magnetic fields. During a treatment session, the electromagnetic coil is placed against your scalp. The machine then painlessly delivers the magnetic pulse to the regions of your brain most associated with depression and mood control. Besides its effectiveness in alleviating treatment-resistant depression, TMS therapy has also been shown to be effective for conditions like OCD, anxiety, and PTSD.
How does TMS therapy differ from other depression treatments?
While antidepressants help many that suffer from depression, a significant number of people either find that their depression persists or that the side effects are too extreme. Due to its non-invasive and drug-free nature, TMS therapy avoids many of these side effects. Also – unlike electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) – TMS does not require sedation with anesthesia and does not cause seizures.
