4. Ulnar Neuritis

The Ulnar nerve crosses around the back of the inside of the elbow.


Keeping your elbow on the desk whilst using the computer keyboard can lead to compression of the ulnar nerve

  • Tingling in the fingers
  • Pain in the ring and small fingers at night or when repeating the activity which compresses the nerve
  • Elbow /funny bone feels sensitive

Use an adjustable seat and make sure that your arms are the correct height for the desk.
Avoid putting your elbows on the desk whilst you are using the computer
Use wrist rests to support  your wrists whist typing.
