Presented By: Dr. Davide Martino, Ph.D. MD, Director of the Movement Disorders Program at the University of Calgary


This webinar will include a Q&A with the community and will cover important topics including:

  • Data to support the various ways that patients experience the non-motor symptoms of dystonia.
  • Details on the most common non-motor symptoms and possible treatment for these symptoms.
  • Recommendations for improving quality of life, despite a dystonia diagnosis.


“Health professionals are starting to recognize that symptoms like social anxiety, low mood, disrupted sleep, pain, and fatigue can impact the quality of life of people with dystonia just as much as, or sometimes even more than, uncontrollable movements and postures. Recognizing this, however, is just the beginning. It’s time now to start discussing new management plans.” - Dr. Davide Martino.
