While we are learning everyday the great and undiscovered potential of TMS, to date the FDA has only cleared TMS for treatment in Major Depressive Disorder. If you are suffering from Major Depressive Disorder, TMS may be the right option for you.
Studies are being released every year which show that TMS could be used to alleviate symptoms stemming from Parkinson’s Disease, Fibromyalgia, and even Multiple Sclerosis. TMS has even been shown to reverse the effects of OCD, PTSD, and especially migraines. It may be some time before your doctor can prescribe TMS for these ailments, but clinical studies are being conducted nationwide and are always looking for participants.
*Please note that in early 2014, the FDA cleared a TMS device for treatment of Migraines accompanied by auras.
