TMS: Now available at ProCare
TMS uses non-invasive magnetic pulses to stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain to activate positive mood pathways:
When an electrical current passes through a TMS coil, it generates a magnetic field that passes into the brain without resistance.
This magnetic field acts via induction to produce electrical activity in the underlying cortical neurons.
If the stimulation is provided above a certain threshold, these neurons will depolarise.
The repeated firing of local cortical neurons induces an effect similar to long-term potentiation.
The safety and well being of our staff and patients are our number one priority. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others.
If you have an appointment scheduled
To minimise the spread of COVID 19 we are moving most of our consultations to telehealth options until further notice. Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any further questions.
