The LAC Fund for Hemi-Dystonia

Dystonia is neurological movement disorder characterized by excessive involuntary contraction of muscles which force certain parts of the body into repetitive and sometimes painful patterned movements. Dystonia can affect any part of the body including the neck, arms, legs, torso, eyelids and vocal chords.

Dystonia can can strike at any age, from birth and infancy well into adulthood. Dystonia can be caused by genetic mutations, reaction to drugs, or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Although there is no known cause for Dystonia, many researchers believe Dystonia results from abnormality or damage to the basal ganglia or other brain regions that control movement.

Dystonia is often confused with another more widely known movement disorder:
Parkinson’s Disease, however Parkinson’s Disease is characterized by slow movements.
