An Overview of Tics
Published (updated: ) in 미 분류.
Tic Toc is a red, round, salt-water sand type of salt that is often used to clean or repair small wounds. It is found in saline solution used in treating small wounds. Tic Toc is also known by the names: To-tack, Tickle, Bugbane, Sandmate and Sandpour. The application of this type of ointment, when applied directly, can remove hair from its root (the follicle). This method is useful for treating skin problems such as sunburn, insect bites, cuts and scrapes, burns and minor bacterial infections.
Many people use tic therapy to reduce swelling and pain. In some cases, this ointment has been found to improve sleep due to its effects on muscle relaxation and pain receptors. It has also shown promise as a treatment for people with moderate pain, including pain resulting from car accidents, arthritis, menstrual cramps, menstrual pains, tennis elbow, and phantom limb pain. It has been used to treat children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder, and in psychotherapeutic sessions for anxiety, depression and mood disorders.
Tics are often accompanied by a tickling or itching sensation on the body. They tend to appear at random and are extremely contagious. The first step in treatment is to determine the exact cause. Identifying and treating the specific cause is important to relieve tics. Medicines that treat only the symptoms of tics cannot be used as a stand-alone treatment and are therefore not recommended.
It is thought that tics result from a combination of stress, anxiety and tension, or a reaction to physical stimuli such as hair rubbing, facial expressions, sneezing or laughing. Other triggers can include music, hand movements, brushing the teeth, coughing and even eating certain foods. It is often difficult to determine the exact cause of tics and hence the exact tic therapy or combination of therapies is hard to establish. Some researchers believe that tics are genetic and if you have one in your family it is likely that you will also have another tic.
Stress is believed to be a major trigger for tics and hence many stress relief techniques are used to help relieve stress. Hypnosis is a technique that has been shown to be highly effective in stress management, and in helping patients to relax. Other therapies include massage, biofeedback, aromatherapy, exercise, meditation and self-hypnosis. Hypnosis is considered to be the most successful when combined with other therapies, and it is usually the last treatment sought after instead of the first.
There are different types of tic therapy. All these tic treatments aim at relieving symptoms of tics rather than treating the underlying cause. Tic-relieving creams and ointments are commonly used, but there is no guarantee that they can stop the tics completely. In some cases people find that stress, anxiety and panic disorders worsen the tics, and after prolonged use they begin to reappear.
Tics are often triggered by anxiety and stress. This therapy aims at decreasing anxiety and stress levels. One can employ self-hypnosis techniques to calm the nerves and relax the body. Relaxation techniques such as yoga and meditation have also proved beneficial in treating some forms of tics. Hypnotherapy along with other therapies have also shown some success in reducing symptoms of tics.
A combination of therapies has also been found to be quite useful in the long term. A combination of behavioral therapy and medications can help in reducing the frequency of tics. While tics can be managed to a large extent with behavioral techniques, in some cases medication may be required. The medications used for tics are similar to those used for other conditions and thus the side effects should be well understood before commencing therapy.
