Examining problems with tactile sensation and proprioception in cervical dystonia phenotypes

Takeaway

  • All individuals with cervical dystonia (CD) expressed tactile impairment, but only participants with tremor-inducing CD expressed problems in proprioception, indicating that a dysfunction in the cerebellum may account for both the tremors and the proprioception.

Why this matters

    These findings, identifying new correlations with tactile and proprioception impairments in CD variants, may translate into improved tailored rehabilitation protocols for patients with CD.
