Spasmodic torticollis, also called cervical dystonia or wryneck, is not something we see every day but it’s not all that rare either. It’s a condition that causes the neck to turn involuntarily to the right or left or up or down. It’s a neurologic problem involving the muscles in the neck. The head being turned involuntarily is bad enough but there is often a lot of pain with the condition. Botox injections are used to treat spasmodic torticollis but it only helps so much.
