Muscle ups...: Typically, tremors are usually treated by a neurologist; or managed with medications...And sometimes even the medications themselves are the cause of the tremors. Rehab medicine plays a role in strengthening the muscles and thus toning up the neurology at the local level. Hope this addresses your post. Cheers!

How come I have involuntary head movements or tremors while sitting still?

Movement disorder: Resting tremor is worrisome. Some persons are nervous and have a need to move even when trying to sit still. This may be normal, but may indicate a disorder. Tourette sydrome can begin in this manner as can parkinsonism. A thorough medical evaluation would be appropriate.
