    Types of repetitive strain injury: Cubital tunnel syndrome


    Repetitive strain injury is a commonly heard term when it comes to accidents at work. Repetitive strain injury is caused by placing a continuous and excessive load on the same muscle groups for an extended period of time and is mainly caused by repetitive physical activities.

    Did you know, however, that repetitive strain injury is an umbrella term used to describe a range of conditions which affect the nervous and musculoskeletal systems?

    In this article, we’ll be having a look at one particular type of repetitive strain injury known as cubital tunnel syndrome.

    Cubital tunnel syndrome

    Cubital tunnel syndrome is a repetitive strain injury which affects the ring and little fingers, which may progress up to the arm. It is caused when the ulnar nerve is pinched along the elbow’s edge.

    It is not to be confused with the similar sounding carpal tunnel syndrome, which affects the thumb, index and middle finger.

    What are the symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome?

    Cubital tunnel syndrome manifests itself at first as a tingling or numbness in the ring and little fingers which may develop into aches, pain or even paralysis. The symptoms may eventually make their way up the arm to the elbow.
