BIDMC is a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of dystonia, a rare movement disorder characterized by excessive pulling of muscles, leading to twisting movements or abnormal postures. Dystonia may be treated with a combination of oral medications, botulinum toxin injections (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport and Myobloc), speech therapy, physical therapy and more.

Deep brain stimulation is an approved treatment for patients with tremors, dystonia and Parkinson's disease when medications are no longer adequate. DBS uses a surgically implanted device called a neurostimulator — similar to a heart pacemaker — to deliver electrical stimulation to targeted areas in the brain that control movement.
