Can you get carpal tunnel syndrome from playing the piano also?

In brief: Less common

Repetitive flexion/extension of the wrist may be encountered with a piano, but, as i understand it, this represents the non-preferred way of playing the piano, but see no reason it could not occur otherwise.

In brief: CTS

Perhaps, but prove that you caused it and not form something else it.
.Thus the problem need a huge randomized blinded study or huge multifactorial longitudinal study to figure it out.

In brief: Piano carpal tunnel

If you have carpal tunnel and play the piano chances are that this is when it may bother you, but the piano playing is unlikely the cause.
