Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

What is cubital tunnel syndrome?

Cubital tunnel syndrome is when the Ulnar Nerve (your funny bone) is compressed in its tunnel on the inside of the elbow. There are many causes for this to occur, most of which get worse with the elbow in a flexed position.

What are the symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome?

Most patients suffering from cubital tunnel syndrome complain of pain, tingling and numbness in the forearm down into their little and ring finger.


In severe cases it may lead to weakness in the hand and obvious guttering on the back of the hand. These symptoms are usually intermittent at first, associated with positions of your elbow, but become constant as it progresses. If left untreated can lead to permanent nerve damage to your hand.
