A tic is a sudden movement or sound that happens automatically. Tics happen because our brain breaks don't always work in the moment causing signals to be sent to our muscles resulting in involuntary movements and sounds
There are many different types of tics, and they all fit into one of three categories. The tics that cause sounds are called vocal tics. The tics that cause movements are called motor tics. There are also cognitive/mind tics, were you might have thoughts or images in your mind..
