Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is similar to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, except it is caused by compression of the Ulna Nerve at the Elbow. As a result patients experience numbness affecting the small and ring fingers. Weakness and clawing of the hand may also occur in longstanding cases.
If you suffer from Cubital Tunnel Syndrome a Nerve Conduction Study will need to be performed. Surgery may be required to release the nerve and relieve the compression
