OBSESSIVE - COMPULSIVE DISORDER

Positive Mind Care and Research Centre is a leading mental health care facility of Delhi – NCR, dedicated to helping individuals to overcome Anxious Depression and reclaim their joyful lives through a unique breakthrough technology called Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS), which can reach significant depth and breadth of the brain and produce broad stimulation and functional modulation of targeted brain areas to help treat Anxious Depression.

Deep TMS treatment features unique, patented coils that are fitted into a helmet, which is secured snugly to the patient’s head during the treatment. We are using BrainsWay’s therapy, which has been utilized in over 60 clinical trials worldwide. The company’s device has been FDA approved for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) since 2013, FDA cleared (De-Novo) for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since 2018, FDA cleared as an aid for short-term Smoking Cessation since 2020, and has now received an expanded indication for Anxious Depression.

What is Obsessive - Compulsive Disorder OCD)?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health disorder that involves a cycle of obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are intrusive, distressing, and unwanted thoughts, images, or urges that repeatedly enter a person’s mind. These obsessions are often irrational and cause significant anxiety or discomfort. Common obsessions include fears of contamination, doubts about safety, concerns related to symmetry and order, and forbidden or taboo thoughts.

Compulsions, on the other hand, are repetitive behaviors or mental acts that a person feels compelled to perform in response to the obsessions. The aim of the compulsions is to reduce the distress caused by the obsessions, but the relief is short-lived and temporary. Common compulsions include excessive washing or cleaning to reduce fears of contamination, repeated checking to ensure safety, counting or repeating actions to prevent harm, and engaging in mental rituals to neutralize obsessions.

OCD can significantly impact various aspects of a person’s life, including work, school, relationships, and overall well-being. The time-consuming nature of compulsions can lead to impaired productivity and social withdrawal. Many individuals with OCD recognize that their obsessions and compulsions are irrational and excessive, but they feel driven to perform the behaviors to alleviate anxiety, leading to a distressing internal struggle.

The exact cause of OCD is not fully understood, but it likely involves a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurobiological factors. Imbalances in certain brain chemicals, such as serotonin, are thought to play a role in the development of OCD.

OBSESSIVE - COMPULSIVE DISORDER DEMOGRAPHICS

Studies suggest that roughly 2.3% of the global population suffers from OCD.

SYMPTOMS

It’s important to note that the symptoms of OCD can vary in severity and presentation among individuals. A qualified mental health professional should conduct a thorough evaluation for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. OCD is a treatable condition, and with appropriate support and treatment, individuals can learn to manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.

  • Obsessions:
      1. Intrusive, unwanted, and distressing thoughts, images, or urges that repeatedly enter the person’s mind.
      2. Fear of contamination or germs.
      3. Worries about harming oneself or others.
      4. Excessive concerns about symmetry, order, or precision.
      5. Unwanted taboo or aggressive thoughts.
  • Compulsions:
      1. Repetitive behaviors or mental acts performed in response to the obsessions.
      2. Excessive hand-washing, cleaning, or sanitizing due to contamination fears.
      3. Checking and rechecking locks, appliances, or switches due to safety concerns.
      4. Counting to a specific number or repeating actions to prevent harm or reduce anxiety.
      5. Engaging in mental rituals or praying to neutralize distressing thoughts.
  • Distress and Interference:
      1. Obsessions and compulsions cause significant distress and anxiety.
      2. The time-consuming nature of compulsions interferes with daily activities and relationships.
      3. Efforts to resist obsessions and compulsions lead to increased distress.
  • Avoidance and Safety Behaviors:
    1. Individuals may avoid certain situations or triggers to prevent the onset of obsessions.
    2. They may use safety behaviors, such as mental rituals or avoidance, to try to prevent feared outcomes.

How does Deep TMS Work ?

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that has shown promise in the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Deep TMS involves the use of a helmet-like device that generates magnetic fields to stimulate specific brain areas. Here’s how Deep TMS helps in treating OCD:

Targeted Brain Stimulation: Deep TMS allows precise targeting of specific brain regions implicated in OCD, such as the prefrontal cortex and the anterior cingulate cortex. These areas are involved in regulating mood, anxiety, and repetitive behaviors, which are key aspects of OCD.

Normalizing Brain Activity: In individuals with OCD, there is often abnormal brain activity in the targeted regions. Deep TMS can help normalize this activity, restoring more balanced brain functioning.

Neuroplasticity: Deep TMS can induce changes in brain plasticity, which is the brain’s ability to reorganize and form new neural connections. By stimulating certain brain areas, Deep TMS may promote adaptive changes that can help reduce OCD symptoms.

Non-Invasive and Well-Tolerated: Deep TMS is considered a non-invasive procedure, as it does not require surgery or anesthesia. Compared to other brain stimulation techniques, it is generally well-tolerated, with minimal side effects.

Augmentation to Other Treatments: Deep TMS is often used as an adjunct to other treatments for OCD, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication. Combining Deep TMS with other interventions may enhance treatment outcomes, especially for individuals who have not responded well to traditional therapies.
