Dystonia Treatment

Neurological movement disorder

Dystonias are neurological movement disorders affecting different part of the body, and cause involuntary muscle contractions. Cervical dystonia is the most common focal dystonia and it affects about 40,000 of people in UK per year.

Dystonia Symptoms

Cervical dystonia affects nerves supplying the neck and/or shoulder muscles resulting in twisting and repetitive movements. This causes the muscles to be held in abnormal positions that are typically quite painful. In some cases, they may be associated with some tremor.

Another common type of this condition is eye dystonia, known as ‘Blepharospasm’. Eye dystonia is uncontrollable, sustained, and often painful muscle contractions around the eye. Symptoms of this condition may include excessive blinking and involuntary closure of the eyelids.

Dystonia Treatment

The treatment includes small amounts of fillers that are injected in the muscles. This is done so that they can block nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. The effect of the treatment is temporary and lasts for about 12 weeks. Results might vary based on the individual case. Our team of doctors have broad experience in injections and can very effectively treat these disabling movement disorders.
