Homeopathic Treatment for Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

What is Cubital Tunnel and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome?

Cubital tunnel is a space on the inner elbow on the dorsal side that allows for the passage of the ulnar nerve. The cubital tunnel is bordered by a bony bump known as the medial epicondyle on the inner side, and by the olecranon process of the elbow on the outer side. Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition arising from the compression, irritation, pinching or stretching of the ulnar nerve at the elbow in the cubital tunnel region. Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common nerve compression syndrome in the upper limbs following Carpal tunnel syndrome. Homeopathy is highly successful in treating nerve compression conditions including cubital tunnel syndrome.
