- Dystonia-. an attitude or posture due to the co-contraction of agonists and antagonist muscles in one region of the body. it most often affects the large axial muscles of the trunk and limb girdles. conditions which feature persistent or recurrent episodes of dystonia as a primary manifestation of disease are referred to as dystonic disorders. (adams et al., principles of neurology, 6th ed, p77)
- Dystonia Musculorum Deformans-. a condition characterized by focal dystonia that progresses to involuntary spasmodic contractions of the muscles of the legs, trunk, arms, and face. the hands are often spared, however, sustained axial and limb contractions may lead to a state where the body is grossly contorted. onset is usually in the first or second decade. familial patterns of inheritance, primarily autosomal dominant with incomplete penetrance, have been identified. (adams et al., principles of neurology, 6th ed, p1078)
- Dystonic Disorders-. acquired and inherited conditions that feature dystonia as a primary manifestation of disease. these disorders are generally divided into generalized dystonias (e.g., dystonia musculorum deformans) and focal dystonias (e.g., writer's cramp). they are also classified by patterns of inheritance and by age of onset.
- Meige Syndrome-. a syndrome characterized by orofacial dystonia; including blepharospasm; forceful jaw opening; lip retraction; platysma muscle spasm; and tongue protrusion. it primarily affects older adults, with an incidence peak in the seventh decade of life. (from adams et al., principles of neurology, 6th ed, p108)
- Nocturnal Paroxysmal Dystonia-. a parasomnia characterized by paroxysmal episodes of choreoathetotic, ballistic, dystonic movements, and semipurposeful activity. the episodes occur during non-rapid eye movement sleep and typically recur several times per night. (neurology 1992 jul;42(7 suppl 6):61-67; adams et al., principles of neurology, 6th ed, p391)
- Tardive Dyskinesia-. drug-related movement disorder characterized by uncontrollable movements in certain muscles. it is associated with a long-term exposure to certain neuroleptic medications (e.g., metoclopramide).
- Torticollis-. a symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. in most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. the involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.

Dystonia is a movement disorder that causes involuntary contractions of your muscles. These contractions result in twisting and repetitive movements. Sometimes they are painful.
Dystonia can affect just one muscle, a group of muscles or all of your muscles. Symptoms can include tremors, voice problems or a dragging foot. Symptoms often start in childhood. They can also start in the late teens or early adulthood. Some cases worsen over time. Others are mild.
Some people inherit dystonia. Others have it because of another disease. Researchers think that dystonia may be due to a problem in the part of the brain that handles messages about muscle contractions. There is no cure. Doctors use medicines, Botox injections, surgery, physical therapy, and other treatments to reduce or eliminate muscle spasms and pain.
