Sensory Examination

The clinician conducts a comprehensive sensory examination to assess for a cervical radiculopathy or a peripheral neuropathy. This examination depends on the patient's subjective response to light touch or pinprick. As discussed earlier, diminished sensation in the fifth and ulnar-innervated half of the fourth digits can signify an ulnar neuropathy. Unfortunately, however, many entrapment neuropathies of the elbow and forearm, such as anterior interosseous neuropathy, pronator syndrome, posterior interosseous neuropathy, and radial tunnel syndrome, do not demonstrate abnormal objective sensory examinations.
