Summary of Research Study

Improved Yale Total Tic Severity Score Due to Craniofacial Manipulation With an Oral Appliance

Tourette syndrome and chronic tic disorders are increasingly recognized among school-aged children. These conditions are characterized by the presence of involuntary and repetitive vocalization and/or movement, known as tics, the onset of which can be spontaneous or may be preceded by premonitory urge. This study evaluated a novel treatment approach using the concept of cranial facial manipulation with an oral appliance known as the Tic Guard to determine its safety and efficacy in the treatment of these disorders.
