    An Overview of Tic Disorders

    A tic is an unwanted, irregular, and often repetitive, involuntary muscle movement or vocal sound. Many individuals experience involuntary behavioral actions similar to tics at some point during their lives. However, tics are considered problematic when they interfere with daily activities or negatively affect a person’s quality of life.
