In brief: Surgery

Treatment options for cubital tunnel can include therapy and splint, however, if there is significant nerve symptoms and nerve studies document severely limited nerve function or ultrasound demonstrates significant swelling then surgery may be a better option.
This can be performed endoscopically with a minimal incision and quick recovery, .

In brief: Brace/surgery

Initial treatment options for cubital tunnel would be avoiding the positions that cause the pain/numbness and wearing an elbow splint that keeps your arm straight when you sleep at night.
If this does not improve your symptoms within a month or if your symptoms worsen then a small surgical procedure can be done to free the ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow.
