Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
The ulnar nerve runs from the shoulder to the tips of the fingers and passes through the elbow joint on its way. In the event the nerve becomes compressed or inflamed, this condition is known as cubital tunnel syndrome. If rest and other home-based remedies prove ineffective, non-surgical treatment, such as bracing, splinting, physical therapy, and medication, may be recommended. More advanced cases, and conditions that are unaffected by minimally invasive treatment, often can be relieved with cubital release surgery. In this procedure, the ligament that covers the cubital tunnel is divided to reduce pressure and provide more space for the nerve to move. Sometimes the nerve may need to be relocated to prevent it from getting caught on the elbow’s bony ridge when the arm is bent.
