Magnetic brain stimulation helps patients with multiple sclerosis

Targeted stimulation of brain areas has greatly improved the condition of patients.

Up to 90% with multiple sclerosis experience uncontrolled exhaustion, which is reflected in professional and social activities of patients. Often people are forced to leave their usual work. Treatment by means of transcranial magnetic stimulation can reduce symptoms of chronic exhaustion in patients with multiple sclerosis. About it in the magazine Neurology: Neuroimmunology & Neuroinflammation scientists from the Berlin University hospital Charité.

As part of a pilot study with 33 subjects revealed that transcranial magnetic stimulation reduces the symptoms of chronic exhaustion, and serious side effects of this therapy are not. Patients received three times a week for a month and a half 20-minute sessions of magnetic stimulation. Targeted stimulation of brain areas responsible for the occurrence of symptoms, has significantly improved the condition of patients.
