CEU Course Description
Dystonia, a movement disorder that affects daily living of many patients, causes intermittent or sustained abnormal postures and movements and can present in a focal or a generalized manner. The first goal of this CEU course is to summarize the current knowledge in limb and task-specific dystonias. This section with look deeper into differences between upper extremity and lower extremity dystonia, posttraumatic dystonia, peripherally induced dystonia and complex regional pain syndrome. It will also discuss pathogenesis, plasticity, and functional imaging, as well as current knowledge gaps and key research priorities. Finally, the first section will relay different treatment options involving botulinum toxin, brain stimulation, and traditional therapies. The second section of this course explores cervical dystonia and factors relating to physical activity. This section revolves around a cross sectional study with 173 subjects that participated in a questionnaire-based study regarding specifics about employment, self-efficacy for physical activity, enjoyment of physical activity, and severity of fatigue. The final section of this course also revolves around cervical dystonia and looks further into the unmet needs in disease management. This section discusses various modalities, surgical, and rehabilitation options. Here we look at what the current research knows, what is considered “uncertain” with specific therapies, and future perspectives in each area. The reading materials for this course include articles from Frontiers in Neurology and BioMed Central Neurology Ltd.
