Neurostimulation therapies target the brain and spinal cord to deliver pain relief or restore function. Transcranial magnetic stimulation is one form of neurostimulation, including low and high frequency focused ultrasound.
Neuromodulation includes types of neurostimulation but can also take place using medication works by delivering an antispastic or pain relief agent directly to a target site through a catheter and pump, minimizing the dose needed and potential side effects.
Neuromodulation can work as a treatment for mental illness, including treatment for major depression, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
