The investigators wish to establish on a small scale the effectiveness of adding the physiotherapy programme developed by Jean-Pierre Bleton to the present standard treatment for cervical dystonia with a view to undertaking a larger UK-wide trial looking at overall cost-effectiveness. Specifically, the investigators wish to establish:
- Whether this specific physiotherapy program for cervical dystonia improves patient outcomes in terms of neck position, pain, disability, and quality of life compared to simple physiotherapy advice?
- What is the minimal clinically important change in the new CDIP-58 quality of life measure for cervical dystonia from a patient's perspective that could then be used to plan a definitive trial of this technique?
- What are the economic implications of the specialized physiotherapy programme?
