TMS is used to treat a variety of brain and mood disorders, which now includes obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD. In a patient affected by OCD, the overactive regions of the brain lead to intrusive thoughts and compulsive behaviors. These are the stimulus behind actions linked to OCD, and they also lead to increased anxiety.
It is clinically proven that TMS can alleviate the symptoms of OCD, even for patients who have not responded to traditional treatment methods. Though TMS is not a cure for OCD, it is FDA-approved as a treatment that reduces the symptoms and improves the management of the disorder over the long-term. Take some time to explore providers near you at the link below to see if they offer TMS treatment for OCD.
