TMS Therapy Treatment for OCD

tms therapy for ocd

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy, once primarily known for its application in treating depression, has now gained approval for the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). This groundbreaking development offers hope to millions suffering from the debilitating effects of OCD, especially those who haven’t found relief from traditional therapies and medications.

TMS therapy involves using magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, targeting specific regions associated with mood and behavior. The approval for its use in treating OCD came after rigorous clinical trials showed significant reductions in obsessive-compulsive symptoms, with many participants experiencing relief from previously unmanageable compulsions. This advancement in mental health treatment not only diversifies the therapeutic options available but also underscores the continued importance of innovation and research in the realm of neuropsychiatric disorders.

What Is NeuroStar® Therapy?

NeuroStar® Therapy for OCD is a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment protocol that involves higher frequency pulses than standard MDD TMS protocols. NeuroStar Advanced Therapy system is now indicated to be used as an adjunct for the treatment of adult patients suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Advantages of NeuroStar Advanced Therapy System

NeuroStar’s innovative coil design enables practitioners to address both MDD and OCD without the necessity for extra hardware upgrades. It provides adaptability in determining the treatment site and empowers professionals to tailor the therapeutic approach to individual needs.

NeuroStar’s advanced cloud-supported software is designed for forward-thinking efficiency, facilitating easy software update deliveries. It incorporates automated pulse adjustments through SoftStart to enhance treatment protocols and optimizes time efficiency with FastMT.

TrakStar® streamlines daily operations for your practice. It aids in patient management, from treatment to outcomes monitoring, offers automated mental health questionnaires, handles new patient inquiries, facilitates benefits investigation requests, and provides tailored reporting tools.

NeuroStar® Contact Sensing

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy stands out for its precision and feedback mechanisms. It consistently delivers the accurate dose to the exact location and provides instantaneous feedback regarding the coil’s angle and contact. One common issue during treatment is that movements such as coughing, sneezing, or even simple fidgeting can displace the patient’s head. This displacement can lead to a significant loss, up to 47%, of the prescribed TMS dose due to reduced coil contact. However, NeuroStar addresses this challenge head-on. Firstly, it has a patented Contact Sensing system that offers real-time feedback in three dimensions. Secondly, it employs a specially contoured coil that is meticulously designed to align with the human head’s shape, ensuring optimal contact. Whenever there’s insufficient contact, NeuroStar promptly alerts the treater, ensuring consistent and effective treatment delivery.

An FDA-cleared treatment for Depression and OCD

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy, which has received FDA clearance for the treatment of Depression and OCD, is both safe and easily tolerated. Being non-drug and non-invasive, it doesn’t carry systemic side effects. To date, over 4 million treatments have been given using NeuroStar. For adults battling OCD, integrating NeuroStar’s TMS therapy with other treatments like medication or behavioral therapy can yield beneficial outcomes.
