TMS Therapy for OCD, Ladera Ranch CA

TMS Therapy for OCD, Ladera Ranch CA

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) offers an effective treatment option for patients diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) but not responding to conventional treatments. At our practice, we offer outstanding and personalized TMS therapy to help individuals overcome their obsession issues.

How Does TMS Therapy Treat OCD?

TMS therapy treats OCD by using magnetic pulses to relax the areas of your brain that are responsible for obsessions and compulsions. Here are some benefits of TMS treatment of OCD

  • The procedure involves few side effects.
  • Patients are awake during the procedure.
  • The procedure does not involve any form of sedation.
  • You can return to your day to day activities after treatment

Procedure for Treating OCD with TMS Therapy

Because TMS therapy uses magnetic pulses, our specialists ask patients to remove any magnetic objects before treatment begins. Our trusted team requires that patients wear earplugs during the treatment for their relaxation and hearing protection, as TMS creates an audible clicking sound with each pulse. Our trusted team ensures that you are seated during each session of TMS. 

Our specialist makes several measurements during the first TMS session to ensure that the TMS coil will be accurately positioned over your forehead. After this is done, we suspend the TMS coil over your scalp. Our team of experts then measures your motor threshold by administering several short pulses. 

The motor threshold is the lowest energy needed to make your thumb twitch and is different for every individual. The motor threshold we measured helps our trusted team tailor the treatment settings and discover the amount of power needed to trigger brain cells. 

After the motor threshold is reached, the coil is brought forward to rest above the front part of your brain. Treatment then begins. You will hear a sequence of clicking sounds during the treatment and feel a tapping sensation beneath the treatment coil. We do not check motor threshold at every therapy but might be reassessed if there is concern it might have changed.
