TMS for Neurodegenerative Disorders


Neurodegenerative disorders are a group of health conditions involving the progressive degeneration of neurons in the brain or the peripheral nervous system. 

These disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often lead to a decline in cognitive function, movement, and overall quality of life. 

The exact causes of neurodegenerative disorders aren’t fully understood, but factors such as genetics, environmental toxins, and aging are considered to play significant roles in their development.

Finding effective treatments for these conditions is vital for improving the lives of affected people and their families.

Benefits of TMS Therapy for Neurodegenerative Disorders

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy is emerging as a promising treatment option for neurodegenerative disorders. 

This non-invasive technique involves the use of magnetic pulses to stimulate specific areas of the brain, modulating neuronal activity and promoting neural plasticity. 
There are several benefits to choosing TMS therapy for neurodegenerative disorders:


Initial Evaluation: Before beginning TMS treatment, patients undergo a thorough assessment by our experienced physician. Such an evaluation may include a medical history review, neurological examination, and imaging studies to assess brain structure and function.

Treatment Planning: Based on the evaluation’s results, the physician develops a personalized treatment plan tailored to the person’s needs and goals. This plan may include the selection of specific brain targets for stimulation and the frequency and duration of treatment sessions.

TMS Sessions: During TMS therapy sessions, the patient sits comfortably in a chair while a specialized Magventure TMS device delivers magnetic pulses to targeted areas of the brain. Depending on the treatment protocol prescribed, the duration of each session may vary.

Monitoring and Adjustment: Throughout the treatment period, the physician closely monitors the patient's progress and may adjust the treatment plan as needed. This may involve modifying the location or intensity of stimulation, or changing the frequency of treatment sessions to optimize outcomes.

Follow-up Care: After completing a course of TMS therapy, patients typically receive follow-up care to assess their response to treatment and address any ongoing concerns or needs. This may include additional sessions of TMS therapy, as well as supportive services like counseling or rehabilitation.
