“rTMS treatment is non-invasive, painless, safe.”
“rTMS is non medication treatment for many psychiatric conditions.”
“intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) is a technique used in rTMS which optimise therapeutic efficacy.”
Neurostimulation is the purposeful modulation of the brain cell’s activity.
rTMS is a non-invasive treatment for treatment resistant depression. Therapeutic Good s Administration (TGA) guidelines endorsed rTMS as a proven effective treatment for patients with treatment resistance. i.e. patients who have not responded to therapeutic doses of two or more antidepressant medication. It is also recommended for many other psychiatric conditions.
At Mind Connections rTMS is delivered with advanced intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) technique. Therapeutic efficacy is enhanced by optimised intensities and shorter intervals in contrast to what is provided by conventional rTMS machines.
Invented in 1985, rTMS continues to be an expensive treatment due to the exorbitant cost of the machine and maintenance costs.
The duration of effects of rTMS treatment can vary from patient to patient. Some patients may have a lasting result, but some others may experience short-term clinical improvement. Patients who have short term improvement may benefit from repeat courses of treatment and/or maintenance treatment.
