Full Abstract: Discusses the injection of botulinum toxin to relieve functional dystonias and reports on ten cases of the treatment. About one-half of patients can be helped, with the treatment administered long term in conjunction with a physical retraining program. The benefits of an injection disappear after four to six months. Professional musicians are unlikely to fully regain their technique.
