These two conditions aren’t as common as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome but they too can cause similar symptoms. The nerves in the elbow become irritated from overuse or by trauma but usually can be managed by conservative treatments.
Severe to moderate pain in the elbow
Numbness into fingers
Muscle weakness in the arms and hands
Sensitivity especially when elbow is bumped
Our physical therapists can help reduce these symptoms by using massage, therapeutic modalities, manual therapy techniques, taping, strengthening and stretching exercises and they may fit you for a positional elbow brace to help relieve nerve discomfort.
