4 doctors agree

In brief: Website

http://www.dystonia-foundation.
org/pages/genetics/87.php is a good website that explains what it is and has answers on genetics. It can be random, precipitated by external causes (one person got it after a flu vaccine...She was detoxified and recovered). There is presently no cure according to the website. It can have multiple causes so i would seek chinese medicine help as well.

In brief: Movement disorder

Dystonia is a movement disorder, in which sustained muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures.
Dystonia can be hereditary or caused by other factors such as medication , birth-related, physical trauma, or even certain infections. In some cases dystonia can be spontaneous with no known cause.
