Respect of the causes giving rise to a tic can talk about causes psychological, emotional, on the one hand and which are characterized by having been triggered by movements that start is repeated involuntarily.
And on the other hand can speak of neurophysiological causes of tics, such is the case of Tourette's syndrome, which is a neuropsychiatric disorder that is inherited, begins in childhood and manifests itself through different physical and vocal tics, among the most common are: the throat clearing, the flicker of eyes, cough, and facial movements , among others. Usually present before the age of 18 and rarely appears during adulthood. They are believed to be some defects in the areas of the brain that trigger this syndrome.
There are two types of tics, the simple and the complex. The first is characterized by involve sudden and brief entries that relate to a limited group of body muscles and repeated in the time, for example, blink, move his head, shake your shoulders. While the complexes consist of movements coordinated and successive involving several groups of muscles, including: touch to other individuals, jumping, touching the nose, smell objects, among others.
It should be noted that it is common that the tics are manifested by children who are in the strip of 8 to 12 years while it is less frequent that occur in children under 6 years. Then, in adolescence, the ICT tends disappear.
With respect to the treatment he has managed them is control or mitigate through the administration of drugs that are also used to treat anxiety, with exercises that are proposed to relax the affected muscular group and also from therapeutic treatment, e.g. psychoanalysis, to know for certain where the origin of the conflict that shoots the tic is.
Now, avoid rebuke or correct tics because it is proven that they exacerbate them.
