Do you have cervical dystonia and can walk without assistance?

The Physiotherapists at Westmead Hospital are conducting a study into walking and balance in people with cervical dystonia. They are looking for adults with cervical dystonia who can walk unassisted to attend 1 – 2 sessions with a physiotherapist at Westmead Hospital. During these sessions, participants will be asked to perform a series of walking and balance tests, and fill in some questionnaires. Results from this study will be used to help design new physiotherapy treatments for people with cervical dystonia.
