Elbow Conditions - Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital tunnel syndrome is a compressed injury to the ulnar nerve near the elbow, also referred to as your "funny bone." The ulnar nerve travels along the inside of the arm through the cubital tunnel - a closed pathway surrounded by tissue and bone – and then to the hand. This syndrome occurs when muscles, tendons, or bone compresses the cubital tunnel, or when the ulnar nerve frequently stretches abnormally.

Symptoms include numbness, weakness, or pain in the hand and pain on the inner side of the elbow. It may create the sensation that your hand is "falling asleep," or pain can radiate from the elbow to the hand. Treatment options include rest, immobilization with a splint, cushioning of the nerve with an elbow pad, and anti-inflammatory medications. In severe cases, surgery may be needed to relieve pressure on the nerve.
