In brief: Depends

Early on cubital tunnel syndrome can be treated with activity modifications (avoid excessive elbow flexion and external compression on the medial elbow).
Nerve gliding exercises can help in some mild cases as can oral steroids. Ultimately, only surgery can decompress or take the pressure off the nerve.
