About the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation
Dystonia is a movement disorder that causes muscles to contract and spasm involuntarily, robbing individuals of the ability to control their bodies. It may affect a single body area or be generalized throughout multiple muscle groups, and causes varying degrees of disability and pain, from mild to severe. Although treatments exist, dystonia remains a chronic disorder to which there is presently no cure. In North America alone, estimates suggest that over 300,000 men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds are affected. The mission of the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) is to advance research for more effective treatments and ultimately a cure, to promote awareness and education, and to support the well being of affected individuals and families.
