Summary:

Strains, sprains and pains are a part of life for thousands of people who engage in repetitive upper extremity movements on a daily basis. For most, troubling musculoskeletal symptoms will resolve if the person rests and ices the affected limb and modifies tasks to mitigate the offending forces, positions or habits that caused the injury. The second most common entrapment neuropathy, cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS), can be just as disabling as carpal tunnel syndrome, the number one compressive neuropathy. The goal of this program is to help physical therapists identify common causes, presentation and treatments for cubital tunnel syndrome.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to help physical therapists identify common causes, presentations and treatments for cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS). After reading this module, you will be able to:
  • Describe the anatomy of the cubital tunnel
  • Discuss the mechanisms of injury frequently associated with CuTS
  • Explain nonsurgical approaches to counteract entrapment neuropathy at the cubital tunnel
  • List the most common surgical approaches for patients with CuTS
