Torticollis is defined as twisted neck, a condition in which the head or neck deviates from the midline intermittently or constantly. The symptomatology of spasmodic torticollis is described in detail, as well as the remission, the electromyographic findings, and the standard treatments. It is concluded that the clinical characteristics of spasmodic torticollis patients can be described as a vectorial summation of tonus in the bilateral SCM and Spl at rest. Also, in the treatment of torticollis, the alcoholization therapy has the same efficacy as botulinum-A toxic injection.

Keywords:   spasmodic torticollis, botulinum-A toxic injection, alcholization therapy, standard treatments, electromyographic, symptomatology
