Resource: A Case Study: Spasmodic Torticollis & Physiotherapy


Spasmodic Torticollis (ST) also known as cervical dystonia is a syndrome where the muscles in the neck contract involuntarily. This results in involuntary twisting, turning or tilting of the head and neck. These contractions may be sustained or occur in spasms. ST is usually accompanied by pain. Although it is said that ST occurs as a result of a dysfunction of the brain, the exact cause to how the nervous system of the brain goes awry remains unknown
