Treatment Options

Treatment for dystonia is available to help to ease the symptoms related to the disorder. Working with your doctor, an individualised strategy for treatment can be developed to allow a fuller, more productive life by reducing the symptoms of dystonia.

The approach for treatment of dystonia is usually three-tiered: oral medications, botulinum toxin injections, and surgery. These therapies may be used alone or in combination. Complementary care may also have a role in the treatment management depending on the form of dystonia, and supportive therapy may provide an important adjunct to medical treatment.

Through on-going research, investigators are gaining a better understanding of dystonia and are developing new approaches toward treatment of the disorder.
