Reply: Dear Sir,
Writer's cramp, also known as Focal hand dystonia, is a neurological disorder where hand movements become impaired (involuntary and impaired postures) due to incorrect signals from the brain. It occurs on performing specific movements like writing, typing, sewing, playing a musical instrument, etc. It may occur due to simple overuse, poor writing posture,holding the pen/pencil improperly or maybe a part of generalised dystonia affecting several other parts of the body. It is advisable to get a checkup done by a Neurologist to know if there is any underlying cause/trigger. A combination of oral medication(trihexyphenydil, benztropine, etc), botox injection, occupational therapy, relaxation techniques, would help. Surgery may be advised in severe and generalised dystonia patients.
