Yes they may be. : Dystonia can be acquired, congenital or progressive and based on your exam and evidence of progression vs static symptoms, classification and diagnosis can be more specific including clues for possible treatment. Without more information and examination with consultation with neurologist, definitive treatment recommendations are difficult.
