TMS therapy step by stepHow to start treatment?

TMS therapy is carried out under the supervision of a physician - a specialist psychiatrist. Not every condition can be treated with TMS. To start treatment, you must first make an appointment for a qualifying consultation.

Ewelina was treated with various preparations - she took flupentixol, quetiapine, mirtazapine, sulpiride, trazodone, paroxetine, and bupropion. Unfortunately, the medications produced nothing but tiring side effects.
Only venlafaxine showed moderate improvement - but only in the beginning.
TMS therapy was effective just a week after the last treatment, and after a few more days - remission of depression.

Sample therapy

Standard rTMS protocol

The best proven, FDA approved for the treatment of drug-resistant depression. Sessions are performed once a day and last about 20 minutes. The therapy lasts 30 working days.

Duration
30 days
Number of sessions
1 session a day
Duration of the session
20 minutes
Effectiveness
45%

SAINT-TRD protocol

It is an intensive accelerated iTBS inspired by Stanford Accelerated Intelligent Neuromodulation Therapy protocol (SAINT-TRD, SNT). Ten several minutes of iTBS sessions a day, performed every hour. It is probably the most effective antidepressant therapy existing - 80% of patients go into remission. For comparison - only about 33% of patients undergo remission within the first 12 weeks of treatment with antidepressants.

Duration
5 days
Number of sessions
10 sessions a day
Duration of the session
10 minutes
Effectiveness

How can we help?Diseases treated with TMS

TMS is a treatment method whose scope is constantly expanding. See what diseases we can treat with transcranial magnetic stimulation.

Depression

Depression is a disease that we know little about all the time. There may be many reasons for it. Symptoms of depression are, above all, permanent sadness and lack of joy (anhedonia). Other symptoms include a lack of energy, fatigue, memory and concentration disorders, loss of interest, and isolation. As a result, it may lead to dissatisfaction with life and, in extreme cases, to the appearance of suicidal thoughts.

OCD Spectrum

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (formerly obsessive-compulsive syndrome (OCD)) is the occurrence of recurring obsessions and/or compulsions. These symptoms are usually perceived as unproductive; patients try to resist them. However, when trying to give up compulsive activity, intense anxiety appears. Over time, the patient develops an avoidance mechanism, the so-called undoing rituals, often taking the nature of stereotypical, completely pointless activities.

Anxiety disorders

Anxiety disorders are the bane of our times, a disease of civilization. They mainly result from changes in the social and living conditions that have taken place over the last 100 years. The constant race, fast pace of life, chronic stress, information overload, the breakdown of the traditional family, digitization, and shallow social ties are just some of the reasons our brain stops functioning properly and makes itself felt at some point.

Addiction

Addiction is a mental illness. Its treatment is based primarily on addiction psychotherapy, reaching primary disorders; those disorders make the patient look for various substances to intoxicate himself or "self-medicate." Constant dropping wears away a stone. Over time, the addict's entire life focuses on acquiring and consuming substances, devastating his mental health. Decisively, addiction therapy cannot be based solely on pharmacotherapy, which only serves as a supportive measure. Similarly, TMS cannot replace a patient's work and professionally conducted psychotherapy, to which we encourage all patients. We provide addiction psychotherapy at our Magwise Medical Center. Nevertheless, we can use TMS to help the brain reduce cravings for alcohol, cocaine, and nicotine.

Cognitive functions

Dementia disorders are a challenge in modern medicine. As of today, there is no way to reverse the "downward slope" of the gradual loss of cognitive function in dementia. At most, we can slow down the process a bit and treat the mental disorders that accompany dementia. Medicine needs new possibilities, and one of the most promising therapeutic methods in treating cognitive disorders may be various neuromodulatory methods such as tDCS, TPS, and TMS.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD)

Treatment of BPD is one of the most significant challenges of modern psychiatry. A borderline personality disorder is one of the most common causes of sudden psychiatric hospitalizations. The TMS method gives a new look at BPD therapy. Although research works have been carried out on small groups of patients, their effects are promising.
