Dystonia is a neurological condition that causes involuntary muscle spasms. Dystonia can affect anyone at any age, and each Dystonia is different. These spasms can affect any part of the body, causing abnormal movements/postures. Dystonia is often debilitating and painful, which in turn impacts many aspects of life. It is estimated that around 70,000 people in the UK are suffering from dystonia. However this figure is not exact as often Dystonia takes a very long time to be diagnosed and is often misdiagnosed.
