TMS can now be used to treat more brain disorders, more affordably than ever!
Thanks to an innovation called Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS), TMS is now within reach for more patients to treat depression, as well as a wider range of disorders, including:
- Anxiety/panic disorder
- Various other conditions
TMS therapy is ideal for patients who are medication-resistant, who cannot tolerate medication, or for whom conventional therapy has not worked.
Theta-Burst Stimulation (TBS) is a new “patterned” form of repetitive TMS that more closely mimics the natural rhythms of activity in the neurons of the brain. TBS is shown to produce strong and longer lasting changes in brain activity, while requiring less time (3-4 minutes) and lower intensity to administer. Research demonstrates that TBS performs as well as, if not better, than the standard TMS protocols that take up to 45 minutes to administer.
TBS is currently considered “off label” and generally not covered by commercial insurance.(*) However, it is now more affordable than ever.
A special magnetic coil delivers short bursts of magnetic energy, about 5 times per second. The magnetic pulses stimulate the electric current in the brain. Repeated treatment results in lasting changes
