What is Dystonia?

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder which may affect anyone at any age.

It is characterised by involuntary muscle contractions which force certain parts of the body into abnormal, sometimes painful, movements or postures.

Dystonia can affect any part of the body including the arms and legs, trunk, neck, eyelids, face, or vocal cords.
