Breaking News on rTMS treatment for depression

29-05-2017


TMS is now available on insurance.

After some negotiating, Crisis Resolution Malta is pleased to announce that Maltese insurance companies offer magnetic stimulation as part of their insurance coverage.

This proves yet again that TMS is evidence based and approved by international insurance companies to treat a number of disorders including depression, OCD, anxiety, tinnitus and symptoms related to Parkinsons' and autism.

rTMS helps your memory and helps you to pass exams!

It's official: Chicago scientists based at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine have demonstrated that this safe and painless technology helps with precise memory i.e the memory which stores specific details (exam material, formulae, colour, shape, facial features, location etc.).

Professor Voss who published his study last month in the Current Biology journal, stated that the improvement outlasted the period of stimulation.

This study reflects Malta's cohort wherein our patients report enhanced memory skills.

NEW local rTMS treatment for generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) reduces symptoms within hours.

rTMS reduces generalised anxiety symptoms within hours according to a new study as confirmed by our rTMS treatment In Malta. We too are seeing results and helping many who suffer on a daily basis! The treatment is painless, natural and does not require anaesthetic. Besides, there are virtually no side effects: you walk in and out after the session to get on with your day!

GAD is defined by WHO as 'persistent nervousness, trembling, muscular tensions, sweating, light headedness, palpitations, dizziness, and stomach discomfort. Fears that the person or a relative will shortly become ill or have an accident are often expressed'. Worry is free floating, almost as though you never know what is round the corner.

According to the the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 'although the exact cause of GAD is unknown, there is evidence that biological factors, family background, and life experiences, particularly stressful ones, play a role.

When their anxiety level is mild, people with GAD can function socially and be gainfully employed. Although they may avoid some situations because they have the disorder, some people can have difficulty carrying out the simplest daily activities when their anxiety is severe'. In short, GAD cripples and restricts people from living and throws them into crisis.

However rTMS now comes to the rescue: a recent study published in the acclaimed British Journal of Psychiatry by Dr. Diefenbach and colleagues, show that rTMS can quickly reduce GAD symptoms and keep people well.

These people are so anxious that they are in perpetual crisis as they cannot function at all. To add insult to injury, they have to cope with the many side effects of a long list of pills they are all too prone to take in these circumstances.
