Dystonia is a movement disorder which causes
involuntary contractions of your muscles. These contractions result in
twisting and repetitive movements. Sometimes they are painful.
Dystonia can affect just one muscle, a
group of muscles or all of your muscles. Symptoms can include tremors,
voice problems or a dragging foot. Symptoms often start in childhood.
They can also start in the late teens or early adulthood. Some cases
worsen over time. Others are mild.
Some people inherit dystonia. Others have
it because of another disease. Either way, researchers think that a
problem in the part of the brain that handles messages about muscle
contractions might cause dystonia. Frederick A. Clary, DC, DIBCN has had
success in lessening patientís symptoms who have Dystonia. Biofeedback
measures have helped many patients learn to control their dystonic
episodes. Specific measures like Positional Release and Touch for Health
are used with success to reduce or eliminate muscle spasms and pain.
