If you are a person that spends most of your time at a  computer or with a telephone to your ear, then chances are you may  end up with a common elbow ailment known  as cubital tunnel syndrome.  Symptoms  includes   some  numbness, weakness or pain in your hand or pain on the inner side of  your elbow.

Treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome involves resting the area affected by  placing a  splint or an elbow pad  so that it will  prevent if not minimize the  flexion of the elbow, cubital tunnel splint is slightly burdensome, but it can simply be worn at night. Medications such as anti-inflammatory  and  steroid injection  will help substantially. With proper non-operative care, surgery is typically avoided.
