Written by the dystonia team at the University of Florida Movement Disorders Center, this book is designed as a practical and complete guide to the integrated management of the dystonia patient.

The book provides a current understanding of this common but often poorly appreciated condition and a framework for delivering comprehensive multi and intra-disciplinary care. Individual chapters review medical and surgical strategies, botulinum toxin therapy, and programming issues for deep brain stimulators. The remainder of the book is devoted to the important role of health professionals from various disciplines and what the physician needs to know to direct a successful long-term care team for dystonia patients.
