Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that involves pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve (also known as the “funny bone” nerve), which can cause numbness or tingling in the ring and small fingers, pain in the forearm, and/or weakness in the hand.  The ulnar nerve runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow.


Early symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome include:

  • Pain and numbness in the elbow

  • Tingling, especially in the ring and little fingers


More severe symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome include:

  • Weakness affecting the ring and little fingers

  • Decreased ability to pinch the thumb and little finger

  • Decreased overall hand grip

  • Muscle wasting in the hand

  • Claw-like deformity of the hand
