Cervical Dystonia

What is Cervical Dystonia? Cervical dystonia, also called spasmodic torticollis, is a painful condition in which your neck muscles contract involuntarily, causing your head to twist or turn to one side. Cervical dystonia can also cause your head to uncontrollably tilt forward or backward.

Cervical Dystonia causes abnormal posturing of the neck and may cause head shaking (Tremor):

Typically patients have a “sensory trick” or “geste antagoniste”. This is a unique feature and may serve as a diagnostic clue to the diagnosis of focal dystonia. The most common form occurs in cervical dystonia where placement of a finger on the chin may neutralize involuntary head movements
