Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am Dr K. I have over 25 years of clinical experience and look forward to answering your question. i may need more information from you, so I may ask for that. My goal is to provide a complete answer to your question and to be sure you are satisfied with that answer.
I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions. Why are you concerned about Guyon Canal syndrome?
These are the symptoms.
Pain on the inside (medial) part of the elbow
Numbness and/or tingling that goes down the inside part of the forearm and even into the ring and little fingers (4th and 5th digits)
Weakness with certain wrist and hand motions
Sensation of popping or snapping on the inside part of the elbow
Decreased muscle size (atrophy) of certain muscles in the hand
The treatment is rest , antiinflammatory medications. And elbow bracing. I would NOT recommend a chiropractor as any sort of manipulation will worsen the condition.
Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your question. Please let me know if you have additional concerns or need me to clarify something. I am happy to help.
That is due to compression of the nerve at the elbow. So yes, the elbow is the issue.
No, not at all. And no. If you really read my answer above, it’s important to keep the area immobilized and rest it to avoid further injury
