Affecting Both Hands

Carpal tunnel syndrome is not only possibly bilateral or affecting both hands, it's most often bilateral. Typically people get carpal tunnel syndrome either because they have a strong anatomic basis for it. They're just born prone to develop carpal tunnel compression or because the syndrome is the result of some underlying medical problem. Because of both of those factors, it does often affect both hands rather than just one hand at a time.
