Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is an FDA cleared alternative treatment for the treatment of Medication-refractory depression.
The principle of therapeutic magnetic stimulation is based on the following: The magnetic stimulator uses magnetic pulses of short duration. The emerging high-intensity electromagnetic field easily penetrates through skin, cranium bones and soft tissues. As a result, an electrical current is induced within the cortex. This electrical current can modulate activity and excitability of the cortex neurons for a period of time exceeding the stimulation session time. This modulation has a clinically proven therapeutic effect that has been FDA cleared for the treatment of depression.
