In 1990 I had to abandon all thought of becoming a professional pianist after I developed a mysterious mobility problem on the second finger of my left hand, which no doctor was able to diagnose, let alone treat.

Francisco San Emeterio


Pianist and Teacher at the "Jesus de Monasterio" Conservatory (Santander).

First symptoms appeared in 2002. I didn't feel any pain, just a progressive loss of my motor abilities only perceptible when playing.

Dani Mazarrota


Trompa solista de l'Orquestra Simfònica de Navarra.

He estat durant 2 anys amb sensacions estranyes i cada vegada pitjor. Vaig arribar a pensar a deixar la trompa. Ho vaig passar malament doncs la meva feina és la meva passió.

It was actually the evening before I was diagnosed with Focal Dystonia that I was lucky enough to come across the Institut de Fisiologia i Medicina de l'Art's website.
