I might be completely out of my mind but I tend to agree with some of folks that I found thru my research.....and that is........that ulnar nerve entrapment does not necessarily stem from injury and/or compression at the elbow and/or wrist. Nor do I agree that surgery is probably the eventual cure.

I have found that daily massage of the shoulder blade and upper rib cage and attempting to clear the pressure points in those areas will dramatically improve the numbness and tingling which I call "falling asleep". A daily 10-minute massage with a strong electric massager can dramatically improve the condition. Also keeping the elbow at no greater than 30 degrees while working at the computer, typewriter or any other activity of repetive motion will help the condition.

I'm into a more holistic approach to this common problem and am a firm believer that docs would rather perform the surgery than to help us find proper alternatives. It's obviously more profitable to do surgery than to TEACH people to overcome their issues.

Anybody with holistic approaches, including exercise for the hand, arm and should.......please respond.
