How is Accelerated TMS different from Traditional TMS?

Featured Image

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been a game-changer for the treatment of depression and other mental health conditions. It works by stimulating specific areas of the brain using magnetic fields, which has been shown to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression. However, traditional TMS treatment protocols can be lengthy and time-consuming, taking up to 40 sessions over a period of several weeks.

Enter the accelerated TMS SNT protocol, a newer approach that offers several benefits over the traditional protocol. Here are some of the key advantages of the accelerated protocol at Kind Health Group in Encinitas:

1. Reduced Treatment Time

One of the main benefits of the accelerated TMS SNT protocol is that it significantly reduces the amount of time needed for treatment. Instead of 40 sessions spread out over several weeks, the accelerated protocol involves just 40 sessions over 4-5 days. This means that patients can get the same level of treatment efficacy in a shorter amount of time, which can be particularly beneficial for those with busy schedules or limited access to treatment facilities.

2. Improved outcomes with Health Coaching

A unique aspect of the Kind Health Group Accelerated TMS experience is the incorporation of daily health coaching and clinical support during the five days of treatment followed by regular ongoing support for a full year after treatment.  This additional support improves outcomes and consequently, at Kind Health Group, the response rate to TMS is over 85%, nearly double the national standard.

A health coach will be present every day of treatment for emotional support and to help create a journaling/activity plan for upcoming days between sessions.

If requested, additional support in person can be arranged with a health coach. During your treatment, patients will have constant access to the Kind team, health coaches, and Dr. Nanos for any questions or concerns during visits.

3. Improved Patient Compliance

Because the accelerated TMS SNT protocol involves fewer treatment sessions, it can be easier for patients to stick to their treatment regimen. Traditional TMS protocols can be arduous and time-consuming, which can be a barrier to treatment adherence. The accelerated protocol may be more appealing to patients who are looking for a more streamlined and efficient treatment option.

4. Cost Savings

Another advantage of the accelerated TMS SNT protocol is that it can be more cost-effective than the traditional protocol. Fewer treatment sessions mean that patients may be able to save money on transportation, and other associated costs. Additionally, because the accelerated protocol is more time-efficient, patients may miss fewer days of work or other obligations, which can translate into further cost savings.

The accelerated TMS SNT protocol at Kind Health Group offers several benefits over the traditional 40-day protocol. It reduces treatment time, improves patient compliance, is more cost-effective, and most importantly, produces better results than the traditional protocol. For those struggling with depression or other mental health conditions, the accelerated TMS SNT protocol may be a more appealing and accessible treatment option.
