Dystonia: DK MacPhee
For almost 40 years, DK MacPhee has lived with dystonia, which leaves him unable to straighten his head. DK gives us an insight into the impact this has on his daily life and his ongoing battle to find treatment or relief. As his condition has deteriorated, with his head falling further to one side, the more his life has been affected. A number of years ago, he had to give up playing football, weekly, with his friends, something which he very much misses and he is determined to try and play again. Will this be possible?
