In brief: Yes - Some Kinds
The worst exercises for patients with carpal tunnel syndrome are those involving strong gripping with the wrist fully flexed.
In fact, any hyperextension or hyperflexion of the wrist will dramatically increase pressure on the median nerve, the nerve involved in carpal tunnel syndrome.

In brief: Exercise -carpal tun
Certain exercises done improperly can cause injury to the wrist.
Swelling in the wrist can result in narrowing of the carpal tunnel and thereby cause syptoms associated with carpel tunnel syndrome.
