orthostatictremorSeptember is Orthostatic Tremor Awareness Month

The National Tremor Foundation is proud to be celebrating Orthostatic Tremor Awareness Month.

Orthostatic Tremor Awareness Month is about working together with the common goal to build awareness, compassion and research of orthostatic tremor.

Orthostatic Tremor Awareness Month was started by Dr Sue Boyd, a former Australian Ambassador and delegate to the United Nations.

Orthostatic  tremor is characterised by high frequency tremors of the legs when in a standing position and an immediate sense of instability. It is a little known, and often ill diagnosed neurological movement disorder.
