Following a serious stroke in December, my mother is still essentially paralysed on the left side. Dystonia in her left hand has gradually involved the whole arm and now seems to be galloping towards her neck too. It is painful and she thinks I'm doing it. Physical therapy is on its way but I'm not optimistic that the therapist will be experienced in treating dystonia. Any ideas for daily exercises, or suggestions on longer-term treatments, would be very welcome.
