Demystifying Radial Tunnel Injections

Radial tunnel syndrome can be debilitating, causing immense discomfort when the radial nerve near the elbow faces undue pressure. This crucial nerve, originating from the neck and coursing through the arm to the hand, traverses the radial tunnel, nestled in the outer aspect of the elbow. Radial tunnel syndrome emerges when this nerve gets compressed within the radial tunnel, leading to symptoms such as pain, weakness, and tenderness along the outer elbow. Aggravation occurs when the wrist bends backward, palms turn upward, or the elbow straightens. Individuals grappling with radial tunnel syndrome often endure persistent pain and discomfort.

At City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, we offer effective relief for radial tunnel syndrome through radial tunnel injections. This treatment entails the direct injection of a solution comprising both a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic into the radial tunnel. The anesthetic swiftly numbs the nerve, alleviating immediate pain, while the corticosteroid delivers longer-lasting relief by reducing inflammation that contributes to radial nerve compression. As inflammation subsides, pressure on the radial nerve diminishes, leading to a reduction in symptoms like pain, weakness, or tingling. Many patients notice a significant improvement in symptoms within days, with the effects of the injection lasting for weeks or even months. Radial tunnel injections are a safe procedure, providing substantial relief from troublesome symptoms.
