Carpal tunnel and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
Compression of a nerve in the hand, forearm or elbow can result in a loss of strength, numbness and tingling, pain, and an inability to do work. Diagnosis of these conditions is by a history and physical examination, and may involve electrical testing of the nerve that is thought to be compressed. Treatment of these conditions can be as simple as the application of a brace or splint. In more severe or longstanding situations where sensation or strength are in danger of being permanently lost, surgery might be required.
