  • What is Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome?

    Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve is compressed.

    The ulnar nerve runs from the neck into the hand, it is one of the three main nerves that provide feeling and function to the hand.

    You have almost certainly experienced pain related to the ulnar nerve - it's the nerve affected when you hurt your 'funny bone' in the elbow.

    It is usually caused by a soft tissue tumor, most commonly a ganglion cyst.
