What are the treatment optios for ulnar nerve entrapment?

Ulnar nerve. Sorry you are having trouble with your ulnar nerve. This is a pretty broad question because there are multiple sites where nerves can be entrapped. I would discuss with a physiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon. The ulnar nerve's anatomy is more variable than other nerves which makes the options more complicated. You may require an emg/ncv study before your question can be answered.
