Epidemiology, phenomenology, and therapy of musician's cramp
Focal dystonia in musicians, also known as musician's cramp, is a task-specific movement disorder which presents itself as a painless muscular incoordination or loss of voluntary motor control of extensively trained movements while a musician is playing the instrument. This chapter addresses the phenomenology and epidemiology of musician's dystonia based on the data from affected musicians. It also outlines treatment strategies and results based on a retrospective inquiry and self-evaluation of affected musicians treated with currently available therapies.
