Our Approach to Treating

Ulnar Nerve Compression in Adults

Experts at NYU Langone specialize in treating ulnar nerve compression, a nerve disorder that can cause numbness, pain, or tingling in the arm, hand, or fingers. The ulnar nerve travels from the neck to the hand and often becomes compressed or pinched at the elbow, causing a condition known as ulnar nerve compression, also known as cubital tunnel syndrome.

Nerve damage can be prevented if cubital tunnel syndrome is diagnosed and treated soon after the condition develops. Our physicians, surgeons, and therapists work together to quickly diagnose and treat your symptoms, so that you can return to your usual activities without pain.

Treatment for Ulnar Nerve Compression in Adults

Ulnar nerve compression is commonly treated with nonsurgical techniques, such as splinting or physical therapy. If pain or numbness persist—or interfere with daily activities—our specialists may recommend surgery.
