Training with ulnar nerve somethin

Hey guys, I slammed my funny bone on a large sloper three days ago while downclimbing and inmediately felt shocks reverberate throughout my arm. I’ve come to the realization that I likely have ulnar nerve impingement or entrapment and was wondering if anyone had advice for a speedy recovery and safe training while recovering. If any training at all is a bad idea also that’d be good to know  

Thanks for any help

Try the r/climbharder subreddit. There is at least one PT with a sports medicine focus that posts a lot on there.

I had the same thing happen a while ago. I have a great PT guy that only does deep tissue massage and graston. Helped me quite a bit (and a two year elbow issue - other elbow). Good luck.
