CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Let us simplify what may otherwise seem complicated.
We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions.
Tourette’s disorder, persistent motor or vocal tic disorder and provisional tic disorder are based on motor and/or vocal tics. The symptoms have been present for one year or more. A tic is a sudden, nonrhythmic motor movement or vocalization. Typical onset occurs among young children and declines in adolescence. The individual may not notice the presence of tics or may have great distress about them.
