Understanding The Ulner Nerve
We’ve all done it…hit our elbow on the table, or maybe it get hits with a whizzing fast ball, and the resulting pain, tingling, buzzing feeling we get is what we describe as the “funnybone”. Part pain, part electric-like sensation that seems to move as it dissipates, the funny bone is actually NOT a bone, but the ulner nerve, the largest unprotected nerve we have.
Dr. Andrew Gaetano demonstrates what actually happens when your hit the ulnar nerver – or funny bone – and how you can stretch for relief.
