Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after doctors for radial tunnel syndrome in Palm Beach. Radial Tunnel Syndrome is an elbow condition affecting a nerve in the forearm and elbow. This nerve is called the “radial nerve”, and is responsible for providing sensation to the back of the hand and wrist. It also provides nerves to the muscles in the forearm that help extend the fingers, thumb, and wrist.

Radial Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms and Diagnosis

The condition receives the name “radial tunnel” because of the location where the nerve is pinched in the forearm. The radial tunnel is formed by structures including bone, muscles, and blood vessels. As the nerve travels through the tunnel it gets pinched by any one of these structures and causes symptoms. The most common symptom of radial tunnel syndrome is forearm pain; numbness and tingling are not typical of this condition unlike in other nerve compressions.



Success with radial tunnel surgery is variable, but most patients feel some degree of relief. The procedure frees the nerve from the structures that are causing pinching and leads to improvement in symptoms.
