TMS stands for Transcutaneous Magnetic Stimulation
TMS stands for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, a treatment for Major Depressive Disorder that has not responded to treatment with medication. TMS involves pulsed magnet waves directed to the brain through a medical device placed on the scalp, stimulating the brain resulting in a treatment effect. Additional conditions may show benefit for treatment with TMS, including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Treatment is done while awake in the office, without the need for anesthesia, and without the common side effects of ECT or medication.
TMS has arrived! TMS is now available at Strive for treatment of Major Depressive Disorder. If you have not found effective treatment of your depression despite treatment with medication, schedule a consultation for treating your depression with TMS.
