TMS Therapy Fibromyalgia & chronic Pain


Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) also known as Fibromyalgia, is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body, accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.
The exact cause of Fibromyalgia is unknown. However, it is thought to be related to brain chemical imbalances in specific parts of the brain. Plus, changes in the way the central nervous system responds to and processes pain messages throughout the body.

Alongside widespread pain, people with Fibromyalgia or Chronic Pain may also have:

  • Increased sensitivity to pain
  • Aching
  • Extreme tiredness (fatigue)
  • Muscle stiffness

TMS Therapy for Fibromyalgia

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment is a new innovative & non-invasive therapy that aims to alleviate symptoms of Fibromyalgia. 

There is strong evidence of low or high-frequency stimulation over the right and/or left Dorsolateral Pre-Frontal Cortex (DLPFC), supporting the use of TMS in pain reduction. Therefore, the studies have shown a significant reduction in overall pain and relief of Fibromyalgia symptoms.

TMS Treatment Benefits for Chronic Pain & Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes pain throughout the body as well as fatigue, mood issues and more. TMS treatment can help reduce the overall pain sensations alongside alleviating other associated symptoms that come with chronic pain. 

  • Overall pain reduction
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved fatigue and tiredness 
  • Less muscle tension
  • Improved mood and reduced Anxiety
  • Better quality of life 
  • Non-invasive 

Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (MST) for Chronic Pain

Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (MST) treatment for chronic pain offers several benefits. It is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate specific brain areas or the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), providing targeted pain relief. Unlike invasive treatments, TMS does not require surgery or anaesthesia. TMS also reduces the reliance on medications, which may have side effects or lead to addiction.
The effects of MST are long-lasting, and the treatment can be customised to meet individual needs. Overall, MST improves the quality of life for chronic pain sufferers without significant side effects.
