SOMETHING IS FUNNY WITH MY FUNNY BONE
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.
