Patients with OCD present with obsessions (repetitive thoughts and/or images) and compulsions (repetitive actions that mitigate the obsessions).
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a relatively common, chronic, and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, recurring thoughts (obsessions) and/or behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over.
While the diagnosis is clinical, brain imaging, electrophysiology, blood tests to rule out reversible causes or indeed contributing factors and a thorough pre-rehabilitation assessment including evaluation for co-morbidities (associated conditions) will be required in all instances. At Buddhi Clinic our assessment includes standard outcome indicators for activities of daily life, quality of life, neuro-disability and mental health.
At Buddhi Clinic we approach OCD from a true bio-psycho-social perspective. From brain mapping through detailed psychometric assessment to an evaluation of the social circumstances, we have it all covered. Beyond medication, we use repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with a 4 Tesla Neurosoft apparatus in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a FDA approved approach. We also practise specialised Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Exposure & Response Prevention techniques, and a range of holistic interventions from Ayurveda, Naturopathy & Yoga designed to heal the mind.
