Ulnar neuropathy means damage to the ulnar nerve. The ulnar nerve is one of the three main nerves that travel down the arm. It originates from the spinal cord in the neck, passes down the length of the arm and provides sensation to the little finger and half of the ring finger. It also controls most muscle movement in the hand. The ulnar nerve can be damaged anywhere along its length, but the most frequent place is where it passes through the elbow. Another vulnerable area is where it passes through the wrist.
Keeping the arm straight will help to alleviate symptoms, so please visit the elbow bracing links below for additional options.Learn More
