Cubital Tunnel Syndrome


Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is caused by increased pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Significant nerve irritation and compression will cause symptoms, which may include pain at the inside of the elbow, numbness, and tingling of the small and ring fingers. Prolonged symptoms can cause hand weakness and functional loss. Treatment for cubital tunnel syndrome may include anti-inflammatory medication, splints/orthoses, activity modification and exercise to relieve symptoms or prevent them from occurring. For symptoms that do not respond to conservative methods, surgery may be needed to relieve pressure on the ulnar nerve. This can be done through ulnar nerve release or transposition (moving the nerve out of its groove into the front part of the elbow to decrease the strain on the nerve).
