Ask the MD: Dystonia in Parkinson’s Disease

Medical
Rachel Dolhun, MD, movement disorder specialist and vice president of medical communications at The Michael J. Fox Foundation, discusses dystonia, an involuntary muscle contraction that causes painful, awkward postures. Dystonia can be a symptom of Parkinson’s, but it also can be a disease by itself.

The “Ask the MD” series is intended as an educational resource for people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones. Please consult with your personal healthcare provider to address individual medical questions.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today. https://www.michaeljfox.org
