What can you do when your movement disorder gets you TWISTED UP on the OUTSIDE?

 

Dystonia may be the reason why your muscles twist in ways that you do not want them to. Dystonia is a disorder that causes involuntary, repetitive, twisting muscle movements. It can occur on its own, or with Parkinson disease.

On August 15, 2019, come learn the following:

  • What is dystonia?
  • How do I know if I have dystonia?
  • How can I treat my dystonia?
  • What resources exist for me, if I do have dystonia?
