What to Know About TMS Therapy in Tampa FL
The TMS Therapy system utilizes magnetic pulses to produce strong, brief fields similar to those produced by MRI machines. A coil is positioned on the patient’s head to deliver these fields to the left prefrontal cortex, which plays a role in mood regulation.
The waves do not reach all parts of our brain; they only extend 2-3 centimeters into it directly beneath the treatment coil. As these magnets move in, they produce minuscule electrical currents that activate this part of your brain to improve mood without any negative effects from treatment itself.
