PrTMS Therapy for Addiction and Mental Health

PrTMS Therapy for Addiction and Mental Health Treatment

Summit Malibu offers PrTMS Therapy for our clients who will benefit from this state-of-the-art treatment approach for mental health and addiction.

TMS has shown to be especially effective for individuals with treatment-resistant depression and have not responded well to traditional treatments like medication and therapy.

By targeting areas in the brain responsible for regulating mood, TMS Therapy has demonstrated remarkable success for relieving depression symptoms for many people.

What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, also known as TMS Therapy, is a form of brain stimulation therapy that targets specific areas of the brain.

TMS is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment therapy that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain.

It is considered non-invasive because it does not require any surgery, sedation, or implanted devices.

The magnetic pulses are similar to those used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines and most people return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.

There are many types of TMS Therapy machines, and they all work in a similar fashion.

Summit Malibu uses one of the newest technologies known as PrTMS®.

What is PrTMS?

PrTMS®, which stands for Personalized repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is the newest generation of TMS targeted brain stimulation.

Traditional TMS Therapy delivers approximately the same protocols to every person with some slight modifications depending on the condition being treated.

While it is still effective, a one-size-fits-all approach means some patients may not receive optimized stimulation.

PrTMS utilizes advanced imaging and modeling to precisely map each individual’s unique brain anatomy and neural-circuitry. This allows a TMS technician to pinpoint the exact locations that need to be stimulated for maximum therapeutic benefit.

In essence, PrTMS creates a personalized TMS treatment plan specifically tailored to each patient to correct brainwave disruptions that cause their unique mental health conditions.

This personalized, precision targeting may provide better treatment outcomes compared to standard TMS protocols for many patients.

What Conditions Does TMS Therapy Treat?

TMS Therapy is FDA-approved for treating major depressive disorder symptoms and it has shown to be effective for treating other mental health conditions as well.

Conditions Treated with TMS Therapy Include:

  • Depression and Mood Disorders
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • OCD
  • PTSD
  • Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Sleep Deprivation and Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Substance Use Addiction

TMS Therapy has been used to help people stop smoking and may be helpful for symptoms related to Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, chronic pain, ADHD, and stroke rehabilitation.

By modulating activity in the brain’s reward pathways, TMS shows promise as a treatment for addiction to substances like nicotine, cocaine, and alcohol to reduce cravings and prevent relapse.

Stimulating certain areas of the brain involved with pain may provide relief for conditions like fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, and migraine headaches.

What Are the Benefits of TMS Therapy?

By stimulating specific regions of the brain, TMS helps to restore normal neuron firing patterns and improve communication with other mood-regulating areas of the brain.

This rebalances neurotransmitter activity, helps the brain to heal through neuroplasticity, and reduces depression, anxiety, and other conditions for many people.

TMS Therapy has proven to improve depressive symptoms for treatment-resistant patients when traditional methods of medication and therapy have failed.

It is safe, non-invasive, and does not require any drugs, so it alleviates the side effects associated with medications.

The FDA approved TMS for depression after extensive research proved it is a safe and effective treatment method.

The therapeutic effects of TMS have exhibited long-lasting relief after treatment ends, and many patients experience reduced symptoms for 6 months to a year.

If traditional depression treatment hasn’t worked as expected, transcranial magnetic stimulation may be a successful solution for some people.

With its strong clinical evidence and long-term effectiveness, TMS gives new hope for overcoming treatment-resistant depression, addiction, and other mental health issues.

Summit Malibu uses PrTMS because it offers the benefits of personalized, precise targeting based on each person’s specific needs that isn’t available with many other TMS Therapy protocols.

We have found it to be a unique therapeutic approach for our clients to heal the mind, body, and soul.
