Jumping tics

Jumping tics are self explanatory tics that are more complex in nature, given that it requires more muscle groups and takes more effort to carry them out.

This tic can be very disruptive, especially when trying to sit down at school or at work, or trying to sleep.

Jumping doesn't always mean excitement!

Jumping isn’t always related to exercising and excitement. It can be a tic related to a tic-disorder.

It is also possible for jumping to be falsely associated with ADHD, or hyperactivity in general. This is not always the case.

It is true however that ADHD is a condition often co-occurring with Tourette and other tic disorders.

To be sure, it is important that the individual talks to a specialist about their personal experience, to better understand the nature of this action.
