Living well with dystonia; a patient guide.

Truong, Daniel et al.

Demos Medical Publishing, Inc.


163 pages




In this resource for general readers and patients with any form of dystonia, Truong, a neurologist, introduces medical terms and concepts with simple b&w drawings and plain language, then uses these concepts as building blocks for discussion on genetics and causes of dystonia, specific syndromes, and related anatomy and physiology. The book then covers pharmacological treatment, deep brain stimulation, coping strategies, and rehabilitation exercises. Vignettes from real patients illustrate the process from onset of symptoms through diagnosis and treatment. The book includes an annotated list of resources, and a glossary of anatomical terms, medical terms, and drugs.
