TMS for Parkinson’s Disease

PARKINSON’S DISEASE THERAPY

TMS has proved to be higly effective in minimizing the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. 

What is Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is second only to Alzheimer’s Disease as the most prevalent neurodegenerative disease known.  Over 6 million people suffer from Parkinson’s Disease (PD), today.  And, inasmuch as Parkinson’s is considerably more prevalent in people over aged 60, the number of sufferers will increase as baby boomer’s age.

Parkinson’s Disease is a slow, progressive disease, which causes a loss of brain cells that produce the Dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter (chemical that enables communication between brain cells). Dopamine transmits signals to the area of the brain that controls movement and coordination, a decrease in Dopamine causes impairment of the motor symptom, including the following:

  • Rest tremors
  • Generalized slowness in motor function (bradykinesia)
  • Stiffness of the arms and legs (cogwheel rigidity)

Other motor manifestations of Parkinson’s disease may include:

  • Unnaturally small handwriting
  • Decreased facial expressions 
  • Unnaturally quiet speech
  • Difficulty swallowing

As PD progresses, postural instability develops, which results in a shuffling, imbalanced walking motion, which can result in falls.

Parkinson’s Treatment

The two currently available treatments for minimizing Parkinson’s Disease symptoms are:  

* Medications – often ineffective; debilitating side effects

* Surgical Implant (Deep Brain Stimulation Device) – invasive surgical procedure that leaves a foreign device  in the head 

TMS for Parkinson’s Disease

Numerous studies have demonstrated the efficacy, safety, as ease of utilizing TMS to treat Parkinson’s Disease.  

Studies also evidence that Depression, which as pervasive and common symptom of PD is also resolved through TMS.  Our San Diego Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Clinic provides TMS Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease.
