Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

One of the major nerves that travel through the elbow to the hand and fingers is the ulnar nerve. This nerve passes through the cubital tunnel. The cubital tunnel is a protective space on the outside of your elbow, created by tendons and ligaments, to the outer fingers on the hand. Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when this safe passage for the ulnar nerve is compromised, resulting in compression or stretching of the nerve running on the outside of the elbow. Our medical team at Medici Medical Arts can help those with cubital tunnel syndrome find non-invasive treatments to reduce elbow pain and improve function.

When you hit your “funny bone” and feel a strange sensation, that is the ulnar nerve responding. The ulnar nerve controls the sensation and movement of the outer fingers (pinky and ring finger) and parts of the hand and wrist. Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve is damaged due to long periods of stretching or pressure. Pressure can occur if a person leans on their elbow frequently while driving or sitting at a desk. Stretching occurs when the elbow is left bent for long periods of time, which commonly occurs while sleeping.

Treating Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Knowing the elbow positions that cause pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve and avoiding these actions, can help relieve symptoms for many people with cubital tunnel syndrome. Others may require treatment when there is inflammation or joint issues that are contributing to the compression or stretching of the nerve, or if there is nerve damage. For those with ongoing weakness, pain or numbness in the hand or outer fingers due to cubital tunnel syndrome, our physicians at Medici Medical Arts will create a personalized treatment plan to offer relief and improved function.

If you have symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome or have been diagnosed with this condition and need treatment, contact Medici Medical Arts to schedule a consultation. We offer non-invasive treatments for elbow injuries and chronic nerve conditions at our clinics in the Atlanta area.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
