TMS is a non-invasive therapy for Depression, OCD, PTSD & Pain

TMS was first developed in 1985 and became FDA approved for Depression in 2008. In November 2021, TMS was listed under Medicare for Treatment Resistant Depression. It is evidence-based and backed by over 35 years of research.

TMS can free patients from a lifetime of drug treatment & side effects

TMS was first developed in 1985 and became FDA approved for Depression in 2008. In November 2021, TMS was listed under Medicare for Treatment Resistant Depression. It is evidence-based and backed by over 35 years of research.

Here are some conditions that are treated with TMS in Melbourne:

How does TMS work?

TMS stimulates neural activity in brain regions that are underactive. This underactivity is often seen in regions associated with mental illness and chronic pain.

For example, in individuals with depression or anxiety, decreased activity in a region of the brain called the “prefrontal cortex” will typically be seen.  This is represented in the image below which shows a PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scan of a person’s brain with depression and without depression. The prefrontal cortex plays an important role in mood regulation.

When these nerves are activated repeatedly, lasting changes in brain circuity can occur through the process of neuroplasticity.

Benefits of TMS

Reducing or Eliminating Medication

A key goal for treatment is to reduce one’s need for antidepressant medication. As such, often antidepressants (and their side effects) can be eliminated after a course of TMS.

Lasting benefits

The benefits of TMS typically have long-lasting results. This is because, unlike medication which focuses on changing the amount of chemicals in the brains, TMS induces neuroplastic changes and facilitates the regrowth of neural connections.

Non-Invasive

There is no downtime with TMS. You can work, drive or exercise immediately after treatment. TMS allows one to quickly resume their daily activities and get on with living their life.

What does TMS look like?

At Cortical TMS, the process of receiving Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) begins with an essential “Mapping” appointment conducted by skilled TMS psychiatrists and nurses. This initial session is critical for two primary purposes:

Identifying the Target Location: For patients undergoing treatment for depression, the focus is on the Prefrontal Cortex, near the forehead. Targeting this area is key to promoting neuroplasticity, which involves the strengthening of nerve connections.

Personalising the Treatment Protocol: This involves determining the patient’s Resting Motor Threshold (RMT), the minimum magnetic field intensity needed to activate a motor nerve in the brain.

Patients proceed to their TMS treatment sessions after this mapping session at Cortical TMS. These sessions are about 20 minutes long, during which patients can relax, engage in conversations with TMS nurses, or watch Netflix. For a more detailed understanding of the TMS process at Cortical TMS, patients are advised to refer to the clinic’s comprehensive TMS patient journey documentation and can also view a visual demonstration with Dr. Wick explaining and receiving TMS.

OCD

TMS activates areas responsible for OCD, such as intrusive thoughts & repetitive behaviors.

PTSD

TMS targets the prefrontal cortex, the region controlling fear & anxiety responses.

Chronic Pain

TMS can increases the body’s own pain-killer chemicals to improve chronic pain symptoms.
