Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

WHAT is it?

Involves pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve (also known as the “funny bone” nerve), which can cause numbness or tingling in the ring and small fingers, pain in the forearm, and/or weakness in the hand. The ulnar nerve runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow.

WHEN does it hurt?

Sleeping with the arm folded behind neck. Pressing the elbows upon the arms of a chair while typing or resting the elbow on the arm rest of a vehicle. Prolonged flexing of the elbow, such as when you hold a cell phone to your ear!

WHY do I have it?

Something has caused the ulnar nerve to become irritated or ‘slip’ out of the grove that is normal sits in.


The BRACING EXPERTS Advice:

Maintaining good posture and proper use of the elbow and arms, such as wearing an arm splint while sleeping to maintain the arm is in a semi-straight position instead of keeping the elbow tightly bent.
