Full Abstract: The expression, killing your nerve, is a misnomer for focal dystonia, or Horn-player's Palsy. This condition is often linked to a specific injury or physically demanding performance. Treatments have been largely ineffective at this evasive disorder. Attempts at treatments to date include: Botulinum-Toxin-A, a neurotoxin, injected into the perioral muscles to calm the tension, and the use of drugs that ordinarily treat Parkinson's disease. In addition, homeopathy and acupuncture have been reported as treatments with similarly unpredictable results.
