Dystonia Awareness Month
Dystonia is a movement disorder that you probably have never heard of. It is characterized by persistent or intermittent muscle contractions causing abnormal, often repetitive, movements, postures, or both. The movements are usually patterned and twisting, and may resemble a tremor.
To help raise awareness of the disorder, Councilmember Georgette Gómez is introducing a proclamation declaring September 2017 Dystonia Awareness Month.
