Spasmodic torticollis, also known as cervical dystonia, is focal dystonia characterised by involuntary movement of the neck muscle, which leads to abnormal head posture. It can be accompanied by pain and tremor. There is no cure but regular botulinum toxin injections are the most effective treatment. Prevalence has been estimated at 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 20,000 people in the general population [3,4].
