In brief: Yes and no

Dystonia is a condition of the muscles that can be a reaction to too much use or can be a progressive disease.
Musicians can have dystonic reaction in their fingers after too much practicing. This is a result of a form of fatigue. If the muscles go into dystonic spasm, they will be left with severe and painful fatigue. Good muscle management is necessary to maintain good muscle function.
