Ulnar Nerve Compression
The ulnar nerve is one of the three main nerves which give sensation to the hand, especially to the little finger and half of the ring finger. The most common sites for compression are the wrist and the elbow. As with carpal tunnel syndrome, the ulnar nerve compression results in numbness, tingling, pain, or discomfort.
Depending on the location of the compression, medical treatment with corticosteroids or surgical decompression can be chosen.
