Ulnar Nerve Subluxation

Ulnar nerve subluxation is a condition in which pain and a snapping is felt on the inside of the elbow when the arm is flexed and extended. This happens as the ulnar nerve dislocates and then relocates in relation to the medial epicondyle (bony projection on the inside of the elbow). Numbness and tingling may be present and radiates to the fingers. Ulnar nerve subluxation is usually treated by conservative measures. Surgery may be recommended for severe symptoms.
