Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment
Obsessive-compulsive disorder, also known as OCD, is a complex disorder. A person with OCD will experience thoughts and fears which cause the person to perform repetitive actions, or compulsions. OCD can interfere with enjoyment of life, relationships, performance at work, and other concerns.
Dr. Matthew Barnas and Dr. Deborah Ocasio at Pelorus TMS provide a wide range of medical services, including treatment of OCD using NeuroStar Advanced Therapy. They have two convenient office locations in Raritan, and Cedar Knolls, NJ, to help you.
What You Need To Know About Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment
A person with OCD will often be fearful of:
- Contamination by germs or dirt
- Uncertain situations or outcomes
- Losing control
These fears and others can lead an OCD person to perform repetitive actions including:
- Recurrent hand washing
- Wiping down surfaces excessively
- Checking doors and windows repeatedly to make sure they are locked
There are several treatments for OCD including medication therapy, and a revolutionary new treatment known as NeuroStar Advanced Therapy. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is a ground-breaking, transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS system which uses magnetic fields to stimulate activity in the cerebral cortex.
NeuroStar Advanced Therapy uses a coil which produces magnetic pulses. These pulses can increase or decrease brain activity in targeted areas of the brain. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy promotes the release of brain chemicals to help stabilize and improve brain function.
During your consultation appointment, your doctor will determine the intensity required to produce the desired effect. There are many advantages to NeuroStar Advanced Therapy when compared to conventional treatment. Consider that NeuroStar Advanced Therapy is:
- Drug free, because it uses magnetic fields combined with software
- Safe, because it has been rigorously tested and approved by the FDA
- Completely painless, because there are no invasive treatments involved
