| Book Description: |
I was struck almost overnight by focal dystonia (FD) to my right hand after a concert. I invested close to 7,000 hours in successful self-rehabilitation over a period of four years and am now symptom free. My rehabilitation was based on reducing tension in my hand and retraining my brain through proper, relaxed hand movements, practiced extensively. In this article I share my path to recovery in hopes of helping other musicians with FD.
