Cervical Dystonia

Cervical dystonia, or spasmodic torticollis, is a neurological disorder in which involuntary muscle contractions in the neck cause abnormal head and neck movements. Current treatment options include botulinum toxin injections, oral medications, and surgery. Find the latest research on cervical dystonia here.
