Someone with OCD has recurring and unwanted thoughts that make them feel compelled to do something repetitively. These behaviors, such as hand washing, cleaning, or checking on things, take up at least an hour of a person’s day and interfere with their work and daily activities. Compulsions can be physical and mental, both of which are debilitating.
Research shows the brain of someone with OCD functions differently than the brain of someone who doesn’t have it. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) addresses brain function and aims to restore it to healthy patterns. TMS treatment uses magnetic pulses to stimulate the brain, creating new neural connections and alleviating OCD symptoms.
Contact your doctor if you’re experiencing these symptoms.
