What exactly is Dystonia?
Let me break it down. Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder characterized 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.
Dystonia is not fatal, but is a chronic disorder with often unpredictable prognoses. Dystonia is the third most common movement disorder after Parkinson’s Disease and Tremor. Dystonia does not discriminate: it affects people of every race and ethnic group and one-third of Dystonia patients are children. Dystonia affects more people than Muscular Dystrophy, Huntington’s Disease and Lou Gehrig’s Disease combined.
Research has shown that there is a cure for this neurological movement disorder but the cure has not been found...yet. With donations, volunteer, and word of mouth, Dystonia can be cured much faster.
