The Difference between Carpal and Cubital Tunnel Syndromes

Numbness in fingers

One of the most common symptoms of major hand problems is numbness in fingers. The sensation is usually caused by a constriction of the nerves leading to tingling in the fingers and hands. This sensation can also cause those afflicted to suddenly have the urge to shake their hands and wrists in order to regain feeling. Possible conditions related to these symptoms are cubital tunnel syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition, that often arises from repetitive use and overuse of the hands. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a problem of nerve irritation in the wrist, or “carpus” which causes the subsequent numbness in the fingers and hands. This condition usually requires a surgical procedure in order to alleviate the pressure on the median nerve. Old forms of the carpal tunnel release required large invasive incisions sometimes causing permanent nerve damage and chronic pain. The evolution of hand care brought a more minimally invasive technique, but even this surgery came up short for providing the best care for its patients; requiring stitches and missing up to four weeks of work. The team at Renova Hand Centers then took it upon themselves to create the AccuCision® procedure with incisions as small as 4mm, requiring no stitches and allowing hand use within one day after the procedure. The AccuCision® procedure is by far the safest, most efficient and comprehensive hand care on the market.

Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

Cubital tunnel syndrome, or ulnar nerve entrapment, is a condition that arises from pressure on the nervous system. The ulnar nerve passes directly under what is commonly referred to as the “funny bone” which makes it susceptible to pressure. The ulnar nerve innervates the fourth and fifth fingers, and when this ulnar nerve entrapment occurs, symptoms such as numbness, weakness, and tingling start to appear. If the pressure on the nerve is significant enough, and sustained enough, it can disturb the way the ulnar nerve works, leading to full cubital tunnel syndrome.
