Most people, including many musicians, have no idea what FD is all about. Hopefully this website will make it easier to find out.

If you think you may be affected go to the instrumentalist page and check the symptons, and there are links to specailsts who treat FD. 

If you have been diagnosed or are receiving treatment, there are links to forums, videos and case studies to help you along the journey.

 I was diagnosed with Focal Dystonia in late 2010. I had lots of questions. What was FD? Why did I have it? Was I ever going to play classical guitar again?There was a lot of contridictory facts, mis-infomation and confusing articles online, but fortunately there was also some great help, welcome support and good advice.
