These methods help increase flexibility and reduce inflammation in the tendon sheath surrounding the radial nerve.

What is radial tunnel syndrome?

Radial tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects the elbow area of the arm, resulting in pain in the outer part of the elbow when attempting to use the forearm muscles. This condition develops by increased pressure on and around the radial nerve, which can be painful and hard to manage without proper diagnosis and treatment. While activities such as tennis, golfing, weightlifting or throwing can exacerbate symptoms, usually everyday tasks cause flare-ups for those suffering from this issue.

What are the symptoms of radial tunnel syndrome?

Symptoms of radial tunnel syndrome include pain at the back of the elbow joint that may radiate down to the wrist and forearm, difficulty extending the arm completely from a bent position, tenderness and swelling on the inside of the elbow, a feeling of numbness in areas such as those affected by carpal tunnel syndrome, and difficulty with activities requiring repetitive bending of the wrist or twisting of the lower arm.

What are the treatments for radial tunnel syndrome?

Radial tunnel syndrome is a condition causing pain in the area around the elbow. Thankfully, there are many treatments that can help to reduce the discomfort caused by this condition. A chiropractor is an expert on manual treatments and can help to mobilize the affected area. Physiotherapy has also been known to provide great relief as its focus on repetitive movement and stretches works to reduce tension in the radial nerve. Additionally, massage therapy can help with stretching sore or tender parts of the arm, alleviating stiffness and relaxation of muscles. All of these treatments have been found to be quite effective in reducing discomfort from radial tunnel syndrome when employed together or separately.
