TMS Treatment For PTSD

TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) has been named one of the “five big developments in neuroscience to watch,” by Forbes.com on June 17. The article highlighted new research that uses TMS for brain injury treatment. Currently, TMS is being used for treatment of Major Depressive Disorder, Parkinson’s disease, migraines and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). The use of TMS for brain injuries could prove to have a significant impact on the treatment of a variety of neurological conditions.

At South Shore Neuropsychiatric Center Dr. Fruitman and his staff are committed to keeping up with the advancements in TMS therapy to better serve our patients. Because TMS is now becoming a treatment option for various psychiatric and physical ailments, we have been able to successfully treat patients with depression, ADHD and Parkinson’s, and hope to begin TMS therapy for migraines and PTSD, as well as brain injuries after research has been concluded.

After completing treatment, our patients have experienced a tremendous increase in the level of daily functioning. We hope to continue these successes through expanding our treatment approach and the practice by advocating whole body wellness.
