What is Cubital Tunnel?
Cubital tunnel syndrome, similar to carpal tunnel syndrome, but is caused by compression of a nerve in the elbow. This causes numbness and/or tingling typically in the ring and small fingers.
People with cubital tunnel typically experience pain on the inside of their elbow. Additionally, due to the compression on ulnar nerve, people notice a weaker grip, and difficulty moving certain fingers especially the ring and/or little finger.
