The severity scale, clinician-rated, is composed of 11 items that assess head movements, duration of symptoms, effects of sensory tricks, shoulder elevation and anterior displacement, range of motion, and time in neutral position; the maximal score is The CDQ is a brief and easy instrument. It can be used to evaluate the impact of the disease on areas not covered by generic measures, such as SF, which are of considerable concern to patients with craniocervical dystonia.
