There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.
Leg pain comes in a variety of different forms and levels of pain. Many people wonder if they simply have an "ache" that will eventually go away on its own and tend to not have it seen by a medical professional. Because of the differing levels and types of leg pain, many sufferers go extended periods of time waiting for the pain and discomfort to pass. This "waiting it out" approach can often lead to unnecessary discomfort as well as further injury. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta, we are the trusted leader when it comes to expert treatment for leg pain. We believe that finding the correct diagnosis of what is causing the pain is an incredibly vital part of determining what treatment option will provide relief.
