Dystonia is just a description of abnormal muscle tone.
Dystonia can affect small muscles or separate limbs or total body. Some cases are progressive and severe while others are transient and resolve to normal. Ther are some forms associated with genetic and metabolic disorders. Many cases are primary without cause or genetic association.
