    Dystonia

    Dystonia causes muscles in the body to contract or spasm involuntarily. This can result in abnormal postures, pain and difficulty using the affected part of the body.
    Dystonia is when the muscles in a part of your body are very tight.

    Your muscles might also spasm. 

    It can mean your posture is not normal.

    It can also cause pain.

    You might have trouble using that part of your body.
