Tourette syndrome is a problem of the nervous system that results in sudden and involuntary movements or sounds. These sudden movements or sounds are called tics and are different for different people. Tourette’s can be severe or mild, often with onset in childhood. As a child grows, the symptoms may disappear or reduce, and for some they completely go away. The basal ganglia are a part of the brain that is linked with Tourette syndrome. Any differences in this area of the brain can affect the nerve cells. The exact cause of the problem appearing in the brain is not known, but genetics play a vital role. People with a family history of Tourette's, OCD or ADHD are more likely to develop Tourette syndrome. The Tics can vary from slight movements such as blinking or twitching and be more severe such as shaking of the head or arms. Similarly, the sounds can be mild such as clearing the throat or sniffing and may be severe like shouting or yelling out words.

There is no complete cure for Tourette. At Medanta, our doctors may employ several methods to treat the disease, which may vary on a case-to-case basis.
There are certain lifestyle habit therapies that can help in controlling Tourette. These methods can help control and reduce the symptoms. Additionally, sometimes counselling and psychological therapies may be recommended to help cope with the social perception regarding Tourette. The medications also have effective results and can greatly control Tourette.
This therapy helps a person recognise the onset of a tic and ways to stop it. It is a highly effective therapy that helps a person gain control over their tics. It may also include other therapies like yoga, meditation, and aromatherapy.
You should consult a doctor immediately if you notice involuntary movements or sounds. Whenever a child shows unusual behaviour, it becomes important to identify the cause of the behaviour.
