What conditions does TMS Treat?

TMS has been tried as a treatment for different mental health and neurological conditions such as, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, dementia, autism, migraine, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, post stroke conditions … etc. However, the current evidence to support the use of TMS in treating different conditions vary significantly. At the present time there is very strong evidence to support the use of TMS as a treatment for depression. This led to TMS being used in the treatment of depression in many countries around the world. For example, in 2008 the FDA approved the first TMS machine for the treatment of depression and in 2015 NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) in the UK recommended TMS as a treatment for depression. The FDA also approved some TMS devices to be used for the treatment of OCD and Migraine. The evidence supporting the use of TMS as a treatment for different mental health and neurological conditions is growing very quickly. Therefore, we advise you to check with your treating doctor if TMS could be a possible treatment option for your condition. You can find a TMS clinician in your local area by checking find a provider page on our website.
