Treating patients nationally and
tics are compulsive and persistent muscle movements with are not
organic in origin. These include many types: jerking of the
shoulder, jerking of the head to the side or backward, arm or elbow
jerking, trembling of the hand, blinking of the eyes, jerking of the
mouth and cheek, etc. Patients with Tourette's have multiple
tics occurring very frequently for at least 1 year (with symptom
relief lasting no more than 3 consecutive months). The tics
often interfere with social, occupational, school, or other areas.
The tics often cause distress within the patient or others.
The onset is typically prior to age 18. There are effective
treatments. The A & B Psychology Clinic has clinicians that
have worked with serious cases of Tourette's, even when prior
treatments have not been effective. Dr. Azrin and Dr. Besalel
frequently treat patients with Tourette's. Dr. Azrin is one of
the founders of behavior therapy, and has written numerous articles
and a book on the treatment of nervous habits.
