TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is an innovative and proven form of magnetic stimulation therapy that targets areas of the brain for the treatment of major depression and anxiety. While researchers have yet to understand all aspects of brain function, it is known that the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere of the brain impact mood differently.
The placement of the electromagnetic device on your scalp is a critical component for treatment effectiveness. The magnetic pulses can improve mood and ease depressive symptoms by stimulating neural activity in specific areas of the brain which are known to impact and regulate mood. The motor threshold of the magnetic pulses and the frequency of the repetitive pulses also play a part in treatment results. Especially accommodating these features for each patient is a key to personal treatment success.
While researchers have yet to understand all aspects of brain function, it is known that the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere of the brain impact mood differently. This offers lots of options to maximize the effectiveness of rTMS treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any side-effects?
Unlike traditional treatments and many anti-depression medications, transcranial magnetic therapy has very few side effects. Temporary patient-reported side effects can include minor scalp discomfort, post-treatment headaches, light-headedness, or tingling near the treatment site(s).
However, rTMS may not be the proper treatment for all patients, specifically those with a history of bipolar disorder or seizures. Because it uses magnetic pulses, it is not always recommended for pregnant patients or patients with pacemakers or other implanted metallic devices.
Is It Safe?
Transcranial magnetic therapy is considered safe for most individuals. The best way to know if you are a good candidate is to consult with your doctor.
Patients who have a history of seizures, heart disease, high blood pressure, severe headaches, aneurysms, bipolar disorder, brain damage, or metallic/magnetic implants should talk with their doctor.
Is iTBS covered by Insurance?
There is no standard in the insurance industry governing rTMS treatment. Some insurers cover the treatment while others do not. The best approach is to contact your insurer to find out.
Since more and more insurers are choosing to cover this non-invasive, clinically-proven, lower-cost alternative to ECT, if your insurer does not yet cover the treatment it may be worth it to file an appeal.
