Many of our readers have asked for my opinion about ULNAR NEURITIS

Many people suffer from ulnar neuritis, and are aware of this fact. Typically, the condition begins with a little bit of tingling in the little fingers and the sensitivity at the motor elbow when placing the elbow on arm rests in cars or on a chair.  The symptoms can get worse whereby serious nerve injury can occur at the elbow level and even damaging the nerve causing permanent paralysis.

Some people will complain that their funny bone is sensitive.  This condition in a mild form is actually very common, in people will naturally shake their wrist and arm so as to improve the tingling.  As the condition becomes more severe, nerve conduction studies will show entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow level.

Often surgeons will suggest that decompressing the on her nerve by moving the ulnar nerve around the elbow improves and the problem.  Unfortunately, this is not always the case it, and many people suffer chronic pain post-operatively.

It is my opinion that most ulnar neuritis, but not all, originates from a traction injury of the ulnar nerve at the shoulder by the muscles at the back of the shoulder.  Typically these muscles include the latissimus dorsi, subscapularis, and the teres minor.  These muscles can be released by various forms of injection, or by stretching of the affected muscles.  Often stretching in the forearm and hand is also required, as well as the neck.
