DystoniaCelebrate Daily Victories

Imagine what you could do if your dystonia symptoms were better managed.

Dystonia can cause severe involuntary muscle contractions that force certain parts of the body into repetitive, twisting movements or painful postures. Although dystonia has no cure, there are a number of treatments available for finding relief. One option for those with chronic, treatment-resistant primary dystonia is Medtronic DBS Therapy (Deep Brain Stimulation).*
