The best type of physiotherapy will depend on the type and severity of your dystonia and the options available to you in your local area.

Not all types of physio are suitable for all forms of dystonia and inappropriate exercises or stretching may make symptoms worse. It is important that the therapist is either trained as a neuro-physiotherapist or has experience of treating patients with dystonia.

If you are considering physiotherapy, check first with your GP or neurologist.
