Ulnar Nerve Subluxation Treatment
Sometimes: Ulnar nerve entrapment typically occurs at the elbow, but can also occur at the wrist. A short course of anti-inflammatories, bracing, and activity modification can usually resolve the symptoms. A referral to a specialist may be needed if symptoms persist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
Open surgery: Any surgery around the nerves has risks and potential complications. Ulnar nerve surgery is a relatively common surgery done by neurosurgeons and nerve specialists. It involves identifying the nerve at the region of the elbow and freeing it up of any scar and adhesions. Sometimes, it is necessary to transpose it or move it slightly so that it is not as easily injured. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ulnar Nerve: supplies motor innervation to the adductor pollicis muscle in the thumb, the muscles of the hypothenar eminence and the intrinsic muscles of the palm (interossei and lumbricals) The branches to the forearm muscles (extensor and flexor carpi ulnaris when compressed produce only minor weakness (vs what occurs when the nerve is cut) One might develop a claw hand but not radial deviation ...Read more
Several ways: First line treatment is protecting the nerve from the insult or injury. This may include bracing or padding the elbow. Pt is also effective to treat restriction and inflammation and improve nerve mobility. Injection is another option. Surgery is last but only with confirmed nerve injury through emg/ncs testing. ...Read more
What's the difference symptom wise, of carpel tunnel syndrome and median nerve injury ? Can cervical rf procedure cause median nerve injury?
Tendon vs. nerve: Golfer's elbow is due to the muscle tendon. Pain starts at the medial epicondyle and spreads down the forearm. Wrist bending, forearm twisting, & object grasping worsens the pain. Cubital tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched ulnar nerve as it crosses the elbow on its way to the hand. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000789.htm ...Read more
Non-surgical first: Compression of the ulnar and radial nerves can produce pain, numbness, weakness in certain muscle groups. Diagnosis is made from the clinical exam, and confirmed by EMG studies. Typically, the symptoms are treated with anti- inflammatory medications, reduced activity, splinting. Ulnar nerve decompression can be performed surgically for severe symptoms. Radial nerve decompression is less common. ...Read more
Nerve root: impingement can lead to loss of function. Motor nerve root transmits impulses to muscles which may atrophy over time if the root compression cannot be alleviated. Sensory nerve root impingement will cause sensory symptoms (numbness, parasthesias and pain) in that nerve root territory. Displacement of a nerve does not necessarily result in dysfunction unless the nerve is stretched or compressed. ...Read more
Is surgery needed for foot drop from anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome (deep peroneal nerve entrapment) from ant tib tenosynovitis from ultrasound burn?
Something does not: Sound right about this. The common peroneal nerve can cause a drop foot. The deep peroneal nerve from ant tarsal tunnel is on the top of the foot. The nerve runs deep as the name implies and hence would not be affected from ultrasound. Entrapment of this nerve would not cause a dropfoot, it usually causes numbness to the first webspace or great toe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on severity!: Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with splinting at night, streroid injections, and outpatient surgery. My bias is to get an injection first. I would get nerve conduction studies prior to surgery. Also, the median nerve can be trapped higher up: this is called pronator teres syndrome, and is above the wrist and immeidately below the elbow. Check it out on wikipedia. ...Read more
Lateral epicondylitis, tendinopathy with multiple tendon ruptures along extensor tendon. Treatment options?
That is a very com--: Plex problem that you have. Is it in the same arm or elbow area? Is this from an injury? Without being seen ; examined/investigated, its difficult to address all your issues in a meaningful way. You need to see an orthopod or a elbow/shoulder surgeon to get the best advice, as otherwise you'll get a pot pouri of suggestions, which may or may not help. Good luck. ...Read more
YES: Damage to the nerves that supply the perineum may result in penile numbness. It is well known that bicycle riding, which is an excellent aerobic exercise, may result in penile numbness. This may result from nerve damage or vascular compression resulting arterial insuffiency, swelling and even blood clots. If you're having numbness your pcp may refer you to a urologist & neurolidt for evaluation. ...Read more
You: Can try a diagnostic nerve block first to assure that that is the problem. Then a therapeutic steroid injection is worth a try before any surgical intervention if the diagnosis is made. ...Read more
Common peroneal nerve injury and partial posterior tibial nerve injury knee joint. What treatment should I go for? Can simulation help?
Pinching of nerve: It is pinching or compression of a nerve due to either a disc herniation, spinal stenosis , a bony ridge or spur, overgrowth or unfolding of ligament, overgrowth of a facet joint, from spinal instability. From a spinal deformity, from a synovial cyst, from excessive fat in the spinal canal, from a spinal fracture, from a spinal tumor, infection or even a bleed or vascular problem. I can list ... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
