Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder which affects no fewer than 500,000 individuals in North America, men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds alike. Although, dystonia is the third most common movement disorder, after essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease it often remains misunderstood, misdiagnosed and therefore mismanaged.
