Tourette’s syndrome is believed to be an inherited condition. However, this is not entirely true. Here are the top two reasons that show why genetics is not linked to Tourette’s in all cases:
In some research, a connection between Tourette’s syndrome and head or neck trauma was discovered. The trauma could be any category of injury that occurred early in life. The event could be as simple as a trip and fall. It could even occur as soon as the time the person was still in the mother’s womb. Tics could take place immediately after the trauma or years later. Are there ways to deal with this condition effectively?
There was a 14-year-old boy with Tourette’s. The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal, and Family Health documented the boy's story. The young boy had missed days of school because of the regularity and severity of his tics. The frequency of his spasms became so violent. It happened as often as 1000 times a day. As a result, he got admitted to a hospital for care and observation. He experienced migraines. He was always exhausted extremely.
His prescription medications, used as a treatment for his tics and migraines, accomplished very little. Finally, the teenage boy began to receive upper cervical care. A misalignment in the bones of his upper neck was identified and needed adjustment.
After only five months of regular care, the frequency of the boy’s tics reduced significantly. Furthermore, he was able to decrease his medication intake while continuing to get upper cervical care from his chiropractor. This procedure restored proper communication between his body and brain. As a result, the boy continued to have relief from his Tourettes’ syndrome.
