Term Definition
Hypertonia

A condition marked by an abnormal increase in muscle tension and a reduced ability of a muscle to stretch, caused by disease, or conditions such as dystonia (prolonged muscle contractions that cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal posture), rigidity, or a combination of factors. Severe cases can also make joint movement impossible.
