How does TMS work?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS is a form of brain stimulation which works through the generation of magnetic fields through an insulated coil placed over the scalp.

The magnetic pulses general electrical current in the brain which activate neural circuits at the stimulation site. It is safe and causes little discomfort to the patient, helping to reduce pain symptoms of FMS and improve quality of life for patients.

Like all medical treatments, not all patients react the same way or have the same level of success from the treatment, but it is an option to consider for patients with fibromyalgia looking for a medication-free treatment option or a new way of managing their pain.  Some patients experience slight tingling when the procedure is carried out and others have reported headaches, but medical support is always on hand and any concerns or questions you have will be answered.

This is a cutting-edge treatment which is proving hugely successful and significant for many patients with FMS who could not find other suitable pain relief or a way to manage their symptoms.

What is TMS?

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

Does TMS really work?

In a recent, in-depth study of 90 fibromyalgia patients the average pain ratings and associated symptoms showed significant improvement post rTMS. The beneficial effects of rTMS lasted up to 6 months.
