 +====== Cubital tunnel syndrome treatment ======
 +Mild cases of [[cubital tunnel syndrome]] often respond to physical therapies such as: Avoidance of undue pressure on the [[elbow]] during daily activities. Wearing a protective elbow pad over the "funny bone" during daily activities. Wearing a splint during sleep to prevent over-bending of the elbow.
 +Education of patients and orthotics may help to relieve [[symptom]]s, but in more severe cases surgical release is effective. There is ongoing debate within the profession as to what constitutes the optimum surgical approach. The [[procedure]] is associated with some risk of [[complication]]s, and persistent cases referred for re‐exploration may not respond to surgery
 +[[Postsurgical electrical stimulation]] enhanced muscle [[reinnervation]] and functional [[recovery]] following surgery for severe [[cubital tunnel syndrome]]. It may be a clinically useful adjunct to surgery for severe [[ulnar neuropathy]], in which functional recovery with conventional treatment is often suboptimal
