About Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD manifests as an unhealthy approach to managing anxious ideas that have no boundaries. After just ten rTMS sessions, the therapeutic advantages become obvious in many cases.

What is obsessive-compulsive disorder?

OCD is an anxiety condition characterised by recurring obsessions or compulsions. Obsessions are intrusive images, ideas, or urges that can cause dread and are highly persistent. People with OCD recognise that these concerns are irrational: they understand that these thoughts don't emanate from outside sources. Compulsive thoughts extend beyond the realm of everyday worries. Fear of contamination, loss of control, intrusive sexually explicit or violent thoughts and images, excessive concentration on religious or moral concepts, order and symmetry are all examples of OCD.

Obsessive thoughts and compulsions

These obsessions generally arouse anxiety. To alleviate this dread, individuals undertake certain activities. These activities become compulsive but performing them reduces the fear only momentarily.

If individuals suffering from the disorder engage in these compulsive behaviours, they believe that their worries/emotions will dissipate. Someone who becomes afraid of contracting or spreading infection, for example, will frequently wash his or her hands, arms, and clothes numerous times or clean the entire home in a certain manner to alleviate their dread. People who are concerned about catastrophes will frequently examine the lights, water taps, electrical sockets, and gas taps for confirmation that they are safe. Other compulsive actions include having to touch things, arranging items in a symmetrical manner, and collecting objects or repeating routines.

The method in a nutshell

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is the name of a treatment which utilises magnetic pulses to stimulate specific parts of the brain. As a result of the repetitive stimulation, the symptoms of depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder are reduced. During each session, a coil is positioned over the head and generates magnetic pulses which are sent to the brain. Each session lasts around 20 minutes.
