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.

Relief From Lumbar Radiculopathy
Finding relief from Lumbar Radiculopathy can be a challenge for many people. By definition, Lumbar Radiculopathy, also referred to as Sciatica, refers to back, hip and outer leg pain caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back. In many cases, this compression is due to a degeneration of an intervertebral disc. Treatments for Lumbar Radiculopathy are aimed at relieving the pressure on the nerve.
If you have been diagnosed with Sciatica or Lumbar Radiculopathy, we will work collaboratively with other physicians, Chiropractors and/or other ancillary services to find a long-term solution to your pain and other symptoms. In many cases, this chronic and painful condition can be effectively managed using conservative, non-surgical treatments including hot/cold therapy, massage, physical therapy, rest, strengthening exercises, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid/anesthetic injections and more.
In severe cases when conservative, non-surgical treatments have failed, surgery may be considered. In this case, our physicians would employ the most mininally invasive surgical techniques possible to help you get relief. We are proud to be one of the Southeast’s leading providers of minimally invasive, endoscopic spine surgery. Using this advanced surgical technique, we are able to offer effective surgical solutions with fewer complications and a shorter recovery time.
