How does TMS help with Fibromyalgia Syndrome?

TMS for Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Dr Stephanie Barrett, working closely with the London Psychiatry Centre and renowned pain specialist Dr Chris Jenner, is excited to bring you this pioneering treatment for the symptoms of fibromyalgia syndrome. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been found to be effective at reducing pain and improving the quality of life of people suffering from this debilitating condition.

It does this by targeting the area of the brain that is responsible for processing pain and sensory input. This area has been shown to be overactive in fibromyalgia patients, so by calming this area and bringing activity levels back to within a healthy range, the severity of the symptoms can be reduced.

What is TMS?

TMS is a non-invasive procedure which can treat the symptoms of fibromyalgia in adult patients.

It is a treatment which is already approved for use in treating depression and has FDA approval as well as being recommended by the National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE).

Dr Barrett and her colleagues have developed a way to use the same procedure to help patients with the pain that is the most common and unmanageable symptom of fibromyalgia.

Does TMS really work?
