Full Abstract: Contrary to Barbara Conable's article, How to Resolve Dystonias: A Movement Perspective, dystonias are not caused from practice habits or ungraceful playing movements. Though dystonia may follow injury, it is more commonly slow and subtle in its onset. Dystonias are first and foremost a disorder of the brain and must be treated by a neurologist.
