  • Howdy Ron, and Welcome to Spine Health!!!

    The common areas for the Ulnar to be compressed is the elbow, hand (wrist) and of course C7/T1 in the neck. Have you seen your GP, Ortho, or Neurologist to see where the issues are specifically coming from?

    As you can see in my signature, I had Ulnar transposed in my elbow (subcutaneous) and too my Guyon's canal in the hand. That surgery went well, but now a little over a year and a half later, my C7/T1 is going bad, and the Ulnar issues have returned. Tests such as EMG/NVC, MRI, CT etc. can help zero in on exactly where your issues are coming from. Otherwise it is just a guess. :-(

    I hope you are able to get a good exam and the appropriate tests to find the answers you seek. Please keep us posted on what they find for you, and too what they do to fix it. Take care. :-)

    PCTF C4 - T2, Laminectomies C5, C6 & C7. Severe Palsy left arm/hand.
