Tinel’s Sign (Elbow)
Tinel’s sign is used to detect Ulnar Nerve entrapment at the elbow. To perform this test, have the patient’s elbow in a flexed position. Supporting the patient’s wrist with one hand, use the other hand to tap lightly at the medial cubital fossa. A positive test is reported when the patient experiences paraesthesias in the medial aspect of the forearm and/or into the medial one and a half fingers.
