Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome Treatment

Some of the strategies for the treatment of ulnar tunnel syndrome are as follows:

  • Using ergonomic tools to relieve pressure.
  • Avoid activities that aggravate this condition and massage ice onto the affected area. 
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and massage therapy is recommended for patients to treat the symptoms of this condition.
  • Pain medication: Over the counter medications recommended by doctors to ease the pain and provide relief to the patient.
  • Corticosteroid injections: These are used for temporary relief of the condition.
  • Wearing a wrist brace: Patients are recommended to wear splints to prevent excessive movement of the wrist and to keep it straight to avoid any pressure to it. Splints are usually worn at night but can be worn in the daytime too.
  • Surgery: It is recommended when this condition is caused due to ganglion or cyst formation which stresses the wrist. Scars and other growths are usually recommended with surgery. Another surgical option is to cut the ligament to relieve the pressure off of the wrist.
