Elbow Contusion, Ulnar Nerve

("Crazybone" or " Crazy Nerve" Contusion)

Bruising injury from a direct blow to the ulnar nerve where it lies close to the surface at the elbow. Contusions cause bleeding from ruptured small capillaries that allow blood to infiltrate the nerve. Direct injury to the nerve causes damage even if bleeding of capillaries is not a factor.

BODY PARTS INVOLVED

  • Ulnar nerve.
  • Ulnar groove in the elbow portion of the humerus (bone of the upper arm).

Causes

  • Direct blow to the elbow, usually from a blunt object.
  • Failing on the elbow

Signs & Symptoms

  • Swelling in the elbow-either superficial or deep.
  • Immediate pain in the elbow.
  • Shocking, electric sensations extending down to the ring fingers and little fingers.
  • Gradually increasing numbness and pain along the route of the ulnar nerve in the forearm and hand.
  • Atrophy of muscles in the hand.

Treatment

Follow your doctor's instructions. These instructions are supplemental.

  • Wrap an elasticized bandage over a felt pad on the injured area. Keep the area compressed for about 72 hours.
  • Immobilize the arm in a sling.
  • Use ice soaks 3 or 4 times a day. Fill a bucket with ice water, and soak the injured area 20 minutes at a time.
  • After 72 hours, apply heat instead of ice if it feels better.Use heat lamps, hot soaks, hot showers , heating pads, heat liniments or ointments or whirlpool treatments.
  • Massage gently and often from wrist toward shoulder to provide comfort and decrease swelling.

Home Diet

During recovery, eat a well-balanced diet that includes extra protein, such as meat, fish, poultry, cheese, milk and eggs. Your doctor may prescribe vitamin and mineral supplements to promote healing.

Prevention

Wear appropriate protective gear and equipment, such as elbow pads, during competition or other athletic activity if there is risk of an elbow contusion.
