Full Abstract: Musicians are subject to a high rate of occupational injuries, including overuse syndromes, nerve entrapments, and focal task-specific dystonias. Relatively few examples of musicians with task-specific dystonia of the oral-facial region have been reported. We present two French horn players with task-specific dystonia and demonstrate an interesting technique for retraining oral musculature.
