Abstract

Peripherally induced movement disorders may be defined as involuntary or abnormal movements triggered by trauma to the cranial or peripheral nerves or roots. Although patients often recall some history of trauma before the onset of a movement disorder, determining the true relationship of the disorder to the earlier trauma is often difficult. The pathophysiology of these disorders is reviewed.
