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.
A rare disorder that can occur at any age, even infancy, cervical dystonia most often occurs in middle-aged people, women more than men. Symptoms generally begin gradually and then reach a point where they don't get substantially worse.
There is no cure for cervical dystonia. The disorder sometimes resolves without treatment, but sustained remissions are uncommon. Injecting botulinum toxin into the affected muscles often reduces the signs and symptoms of cervical dystonia. Surgery may be appropriate in a few cases.
symptoms
Symptoms
The muscle contractions involved in cervical dystonia can cause your head to twist in a variety of directions, including:
  • Chin toward shoulder
  • Ear toward shoulder
  • Chin straight up
  • Chin straight down
The most common type of twisting associated with cervical dystonia is when your chin is pulled toward your shoulder. Some people experience a combination of abnormal head postures. A jerking motion of the head also may occur.
Most people who have cervical dystonia also experience neck pain that can radiate into the shoulders. The disorder also can cause headaches. In some people, the pain from cervical dystonia can be exhausting and disabling.
causes
Causes
In most cases of cervical dystonia, doctors don't know why some people develop the disorder and others don't. Some cases, however, appear to be linked to:
  • Head, neck or shoulder injuries
  • Certain drugs, notably specific antipsychotic or anti-nausea agents
risk-factors
Risk factors
Risk factors for cervical dystonia include:
  • Age. While the disorder can occur in people of any age, even children, it most commonly begins between the ages of 40 and 70.
  • Sex. Compared with men, women are nearly twice as likely to develop cervical dystonia.
  • Family history. If a close family member has cervical dystonia or some other type of dystonia, you are at higher risk of developing the disorder.
complications
Complications
Some people who start out with cervical dystonia eventually develop similar symptoms in neighboring regions, such as the shoulder or face. However, cervical dystonia in middle age does not expand to wide areas of the body, as may occur in children.
The disability and pain that can be caused by cervical dystonia may result in depression.

Preparing for your appointment
While you might first discuss your symptoms with your family doctor, he or she may refer you to a neurologist — a doctor who specializes in disorders of the brain and nervous system — for further evaluation.
What you can do Because appointments can be brief, plan ahead and write a list that includes:
  • Detailed descriptions of your symptoms, including when they started and if anything makes them better or worse
  • Information about medical problems you've had in the past, such as strokes or head injuries
  • Information about the medical problems of your parents or siblings
  • All the medications and dietary supplements you take
  • Questions you want to ask the doctor
What to expect from your doctor In addition to conducting a physical exam, your doctor may also check your neurological health by testing your:new neck brace holds the head in a upright position ,effectiveshanesneckbrace.com

  4. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband was diagnosed of cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis in 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always have Joint pain , and he always complain of Weakness of the body . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis . I never imagined cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.
