In brief: Anything is possible

The development of carpal tunnel symptoms include many factors.
Genetics is one of them. However, certain activities that require the hand and wrist to be in the flexed position while the tendons are moving within the carpal tunnel can cause irritation of the median nerve (the nerve involved in carpal tunnel syndrome) both directly and indirectly through local swelling.
