rTMS for OCD
Ongoing scientific research on rTMS shows particularly promising results in the treatment of OCD. The treatment turns out to be clinically relevant. Since 2014 many people have benefitted from the treatment. 60% of the people who are treated with rTMS combined with CBT, experience a significant reduction of the complaints.
How does rTMS treatment work?
A rTMS treatment stimulates the different parts of the brain, by administering short magnetic pulses. At TMS Center Europe we stimulate the central part of the brain, which is scientifically proven to be the most efficient spot to stimulate. The stimulation can result in improvement of the communication between the different networks of the brain. The effect is that the patient is more relaxed and calm, allowing him or her to think in a more rational way. The symptoms of depression will gradually decrease during the treatment.
