TMS Therapy can fix hard-to-treat OCD.
The Advanced TMS Center is pleased to offer TMS therapy for OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is a treatment that uses brief magnetic waves to stimulate parts of the brain to help reduce OCD symptoms.
TMS was first approved to treat major depressive disorders, and has also been approved by the FDA for OCD treatment. TMS therapy for OCD is a great option for people who don’t respond to traditional first-line treatments.
TMS is not the same as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and does not cause memory loss or damage to brain tissue.
Are You Looking for TMS Therapy for OCD in Ladera Ranch - Mission Viejo, CA
TMS therapy for OCD involves placing a helmet on a patient’s head and activating painless magnetic pulses (similar to an MRI, much lighter frequency) through a built-in coil in the helmet. The magnetic pulses stimulate specific areas in the brain that are affected by OCD.
Patients may feel a sensation like a gentle tapping on the head or mild headaches. As people get more treatments, they report fewer side effects.
This breakthrough therapy can give people more control over their behavior, help reduce their obsessions, and enable them to resist compulsive behavior more successfully. Studies have shown about 60% of patients show improvement. For some people, OCD symptoms go away almost entirely.
TMS therapy for OCD is an out-patient procedure. You do not have to go to a hospital or be placed under anesthesia. You can drive yourself to and from the office for your treatment. TMS can also be used with medication and behavioral therapy. The goal of OCD treatment is to help alleviate and manage fears that something awful will happen if a ritual is not performed.
