Entrapment neuropathy syndromes, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or cubital tunnel syndrome, are fairly common problems in the upper extremity. Relatively rarer entrapment neuropathies including supinator syndrome, pronator syndrome or tarsal tunnel syndrome also posess difficulties in differential diagnosis and treatment. In this paper, the basics of the pathophysiology of entrapment neuropathies and the essentials of their treatment has been discussed.
