Cervical Dystonia | Diagnosis & Tests


How can my doctor tell if I have cervical dystonia?

Your doctor may be able to diagnose cervical dystonia by talking to you about your symptoms and by doing a physical examination. Your doctor may want to do some tests to see how your muscles are working. Your doctor may also check to make sure your symptoms aren’t being caused by another problem, such as a tumor.
