Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
Stretching or pressure of the ulnar nerve or funny bone nerve is known as cubital tunnel syndrome. The ulnar never is found on the inner side of the elbow and runs through the groove known as the cubital tunnel.
The inflammation or micro-tearing of the tendons in the arm used to join the forearm muscles to the outside of the elbow is known as tennis elbow. When the tendons and muscle becomes damaged, due to overuse, it can lead to serious pain and tenderness. Tennis elbow is also known as lateral epicondylitis.
The medical term for golfer’s elbow is medial epicondylitis. This condition occurs when the tendons found in the forearm become inflamed and irritated. It’s a painful injury affecting the hand, wrist, and forearm.
An injury often found in children, a medial epicondyle fracture happens in the elbow. It’s an injury affecting the flexors of the forearm and where they attach to the elbow. While the injury is commonly extra-articular, it can be associated with a dislocated elbow, as well.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Also called median nerve compression, carpal tunnel syndrome causes weakness in the hand, along with numbness and tingling. When pressure is put on the median nerve, it causes carpal tunnel syndrome.
Your hand and forearm are connected through the wrist joint. The wrist joint is made up of small or carpal bones, and two larger bones, the radius, and ulna. When a wrist fracture happens, you have break one of the small bones in the joint or one of the larger bones in the joint.
Any type of break in the bones found in the hand is called a hand fracture. These fractures include breaks in small bones found in the fingers or the long bones in the palm.
