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 and may be associated with some tremor.
Another common type of dystonia is eye dystonia, known as ‘Blepharospasm’. Eye dystonia is uncontrollable, sustained, and often painful muscle contractions around the eye. Symptoms of eye dystonia may include excessive blinking and involuntary closure of the eyelids.
At Dementech Neurosciences, our doctors will provide a comprehensive assessment of the type and severity of dystonia.
Small amounts of fillers are injected in the muscles and they block nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. The effect is temporarily and lasts about 12 weeks. Our team of doctors have a broad experience in injections and will effectively treat these disabling movement disorders.
