Answer

Patient education and insight are important. Resting on elbows at work, using elbows to lift the body from bed, and resting elbows on car windows while driving all are causes of paresthesia that can be corrected without surgical treatment. Patient education, anterior elbow extension splinting (if necessary), and correction of ergonomics at work should correct these transient palsies
