Radial Tunnel Syndrome

Radial Tunnel Syndrome is caused by compression of the radial nerve, or one of its branches, around the elbow or upper forearm. Symptoms may include aching or pain in the forearm, weakness in the hand or wrist, or numbness in the forearm or hand. Special tests are often required to confirm the diagnosis of radial nerve compression. Dr Potter will thoroughly assess your symptoms and examine your arm and hand.
