Stimulating the brain to treat distressing neck spasms

A new study by MDRI member and Flinders University researcher Lynley Bradnam could provide fresh hope to people with cervical dystonia – a distressing neurological disorder that causes painful and sustained muscle spasms in the neck.

Dr Bradnam, a senior lecturer in physiotherapy, has received a $22,000 grant from the Brain Foundation to explore a potential treatment for cervical dystonia using non-invasive stimulation in the neurons of the brain associated with movement, muscle tone and balance.
