Frequently Asked Questions
Many patients describe treatment as sounding and/or feeling like a light tapping. Most patients do not consider this to be an uncomfortable feeling.
Are there any side effects of PrTMS therapy?
A mild headache that is treatable with over-the-counter pain relievers is the most common side effect, although many patients don’t report any discomfort. Any rTMS method also includes a very low risk of seizures.
How long does PrTMS treatment take?
Treatment appointments typically take about 30 minutes. An initial treatment plan consists of treatment 5 days a week, for a period of 4 to 6 weeks. After the initial treatment period, additional sessions can be scheduled according to how you feel and your doctor’s clinical judgment.
Can children receive PrTMS?
PrTMS practitioners have treated children with PrTMS – talk with your child’s doctor to see if PrTMS may be right for them.
Is everyone a candidate for treatment?
Patients with any form of metal in the head or on the face are not eligible for treatment. Not every patient will respond to PrTMS. Results are not guaranteed.
