Latest News - Leigh.jpg

In March , 2024, we lost a true local legend. He was the voice of sport in the Hunter, the founding father of the Newcastle Knights, and the man who saved our Hunter Prostate Cancer Alliance. Leigh’s tireless passion for footy, family, friends and our community was undeniable. The impact he had on Newcastle during his lifetime cannot be overstated, and we at HPCA and ProCare wish to celebrate his achievements and honour his memory.

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. ​
