How rTMS Improves Your Cognitive Functions

Posted on March 27, 2023 by Louise Savoie

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that uses magnetic fields to target specific areas of the brain. It is an effective treatment for various neuropsychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. But recent studies have also shown that rTMS can improve cognitive functions, including memory, attention, and executive functions. With this, we at Wholesome Therapy Center LLC incorporate cognitive optimization into our therapy services to achieve a deeper understanding of your brain.

So how does it work?

rTMS works by generating a magnetic field that passes through the scalp and skull to target specific areas of the brain associated with cognitive functions. The magnetic field then induces electrical currents in the brain, stimulating neural activity and improving connectivity between brain regions.

Research has shown that rTMS can improve working memory, processing speed, and attention in both healthy individuals and those with cognitive impairments. The effects of rTMS on cognitive functions are often long-lasting and can continue to improve even after the treatment has ended.

Moreover, rTMS is a safe and well-tolerated treatment option with minimal side effects, which you can also avail of through a therapy center in Florida. It does not require anesthesia or sedation, and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Therapy services may have been a go-to solution for cognitive concerns. However, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has shown promise in improving cognitive abilities, making it a valuable treatment not just for individuals with cognitive impairments but also for healthy individuals who want to enhance their cognitive performance.
