Two main conditions affect the ulnar nerve: Guyon’s canal syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome. Guyon’s canal syndrome is almost exactly the same in symptoms as carpal tunnel syndrome (pain and tingling in the palm and first three fingers), but involves a completely different nerve. Guyon’s canal syndrome is caused by pressure on your wrists, often by resting them at a desk or workstation, and is frequently experienced by cyclists due to pressure from the handlebars.
when damage to the nerve has already taken place, your NeuropathyDR® clinician may recommend more extensive measures. If your symptoms have continued for more than a few weeks with home treatments, see your ND clinician as soon as possible! Your ND clinician will be able to prescribe our specially designed CTS Protocol which is proving successful in centers around the country!
