What is dystonia?
Dystonia is characterized by abnormal posturing and muscle movement that may mimic the signs of Parkinson’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, or Essential Tremor. These similarities often lead to a delay in diagnosis and suboptimal treatment.

As with other movement disorders, there is a spectrum of medications including muscle relaxants, Botulinum toxin injections and other agents that together with appropriately supervised physical therapy offer relief.
