It 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. 
Many require assistance from a variety of health providers including the physical therapist, occupational therapist, psychologist, pain management specialists, neurosurgeons, nurse practitioners etc.
