As TMS Therapy makes use of strong magnets, certain individuals may have medical conditions that should be thoroughly evaluated before beginning TMS Treatment with Neuralia TMS, Perth.
These conditions are known as potential clashes, and the following are some of the most typical ones:
- Metal implants above the neckline: In particular, aneurysm clips from neurosurgery would be a concern.
- Implanted devices: TMS magnets have the potential to interfere with physiologic sensing devices, pacemakers, vagus nerve stimulators, or other devices that utilise battery packs.
- Seizure history: A seizure during TMS therapy is more likely to occur in someone who has had seizures in the past. In this case, it is beneficial to have a skilled medical professional assess the risk and, if necessary, make particular arrangements to reduce the risk of seizures.
