PrTMS for the Treatment of Concussions


Learn about preliminary findings on the use of Personalized Repetitive Magnetic Stimulation (PrTMS) guided by EEG spectra for the treatment of concussion. The study involved 185 patients with persistent concussion symptoms who underwent the PrTMS protocol over approximately six weeks. PrTMS showed promising results in improving concussion indices and normalizing cortical alpha band activity, potentially reflecting changes in neurotransmitter function, cognition, and perception.  

While the study acknowledges limitations such as the lack of a control group and incomplete data on variables like time since injury and depression levels, it suggests the need for further research on PrTMS as a treatment option for concussion, potentially using spectral EEG as a biomarker.
