How does TMS for OCD work?

The patient sits in a comfortable chair while the TMS coil is properly set in place on their head. Magneitc pules are then sent to brain circuits known to be involed in OCD while simultaneously doing brief provocations or exposures, meant to activate the specific fear circuitry for a particular patient. These are planned in advance with the treating clinician and personalized to each patient. With this protocol, we believe we are strengthening brain circuits responsible for dealing with obsessions and resisting the urge to engage in compulsions.
