Brief Answer:
Botox injections would help.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your daughter's problem. Cervical dystonia can be well managed with botox injections given in the neck muscles. The injections are safe and no serious adverse effects are noted. The only drawback is that the injections need to be repeated every 3-6 months.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
     
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
