Full Abstract: Observation of the rehabilitation process of musicians with focal dystonia has resulted in the identification of the psychological characteristics shared by these individuals. Feelings of helplessness and loss of a frame of reference predominate; reactions include resignation, rebellion, and a focus on solving the problem. Some qualities that may have played a part in the development of the dystonia--such as reliance on willpower, perfectionism, perseverance, and endurance--may be redirected towards rehabilitation and increase the chances of its success.
