What Is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition that is closely associated with anxiety disorder and made up of persistent unwanted thoughts (obsessions) that you don't feel able to ignore. These obsessive thoughts are followed by compulsions, which are impulsive actions meant to alleviate your stress or fear. At TMS Therapy Center, our team is pleased to provide BrainsWay Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as an FDA-approved treatment for OCD. With this noninvasive solution, OCD symptoms no longer have to intrude on your daily life. Contact our office in Houston, TX today to set up a consultation for Deep TMS.

How Is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Treated?

Upon your initial consultation, we will assess and ask you about your symptoms. This will enable her to provide a proper diagnosis for OCD. Once you've been diagnosed, she can build a customized treatment plan for you consisting of Deep TMS therapy. This cutting-edge procedure works by gently delivering electromagnetic waves to the anterior cingulate cortex and medial prefrontal cortex, two brain areas that produce the thoughts and behaviors caused by OCD. These magnetic pulses are transmitted via an H-Coil embedded into a helmet that will be worn on your head. You should not experience pain but may feel a soft tapping sensation on your scalp.

Calm Your Intrusive Thoughts

If you are worn out from the uncontrollable thoughts or habits that present from obsessive-compulsive disorder, we can perform Deep TMS treatments to put an end to these symptoms. If you take a multitargeted approach, Deep TMS can be safely combined with psychotherapy or medication. Find out more by scheduling a consultation at TMS Therapy Center in Houston, TX.

About Us
Will OCD get better on its own?

OCD symptoms may not always improve spontaneously and, in many cases, actually become worse over time. Seeking professional help, including therapy and, in some cases, treatments like TMS, can significantly enhance the chances of symptom relief and long-term management.

How long do the effects of TMS therapy for OCD last?

The duration of TMS therapy effects can vary. Some patients experience long-lasting relief, while others may require maintenance sessions. Regular follow-ups with our team can help determine the appropriate course of action for sustained benefits.

How do I know if my OCD is bad enough to seek treatment?

If your OCD symptoms interfere with daily life or job, cause distress, or affect your overall well-being, it is advisable to seek treatment. A mental health professional can assess the severity of your condition and recommend appropriate interventions, such as therapy or TMS therapy, if necessary.
