What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?

TMS Therapy Is a form of therapy that uses a magnetic device to  send pulses through the scalp. With the single press of a button, a number of magnetic pulses can be sent through to the brain. This therapy can serve as a treatment for severe migraine headaches.

At Spark TMS, we utilize this alternative treatment in order to offer new options for treating stubborn migraines. Our doctors are experienced with this type of therapy and have seen it increase quality of life and reduce the frequency of painful migraines for our patients.

How are migraines treated with TMS?

Migraines are more, than just a headache. They are throbbing pains across the head, forehead and temple, coupled with severe sensory disturbances like light sensitivity and loss of vision. These episodes can even lead to hospitalization.

Migraines can be treated through a variety of different methods. Unfortunately, there is no cure yet. Spark TMS, we've seen for ourselves the healing power of TMS for migraine sufferers. Through this non-invasive method, Individuals can reduce or fully elimlna1e their migraine patterns.

This non-drug option is a safe alternative treatment method for those in need of relief. All that we do Is simply place the TMS device on your head and press a button. Through this, mild electrical pulses stimulate the occipital cortex of the brain and calm overactive brain activity. With TMS, we can reduced or completely halt migraines once unnecessary brain activity Is subdued.

Signs and Symptoms of Migraines

Migraines can affect anyone. They may vary In frequency or strength, depending on the individual. They are easy to tell apart from headaches due to their individualized symptoms.

Medical data has not yet been able to indicate a certain cause of migraines. Most migraines tend to be genetically related. However, people may have certain triggers that Include lack of sleep or being in a stressful situation or environment.

Migraines can often cause the sufferer to see flashing lights, hear ringing noises, or feel a tingling sensation. They can make a person extremely sensitive to light and even nauseous. Knowing the symptoms in advance can help you recognize them when they arrive.
