The nerves in the wrist which are susceptible to compression include:
If these nerves are compressed, it can cause carpel tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, as well as radial tunnel syndrome. Diagnosing compression syndromes can be completed by reviewing a patient’s history, medical history, as well as imaging techniques and nerve conduction studies.
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
This condition is often caused by pressure or by prolonged excessive flexion of the elbow. It causes numbness and tingling sensation in the ring finger and little finger, as well as severe elbow pain. If the condition is severe, patients may suffer weakness of muscles in the hand, a pinch between thumb and index finger and poor hand grip.
Radial Tunnel Syndrome
Radial Tunnel Syndrome can be caused by trauma, ganglia, lipomas, bone tumours, or elbow synovitis. This condition causes lancinating pain in forearm and elbow, which may be aggravated when wrist and fingers are extended.
