Lateral Epicondylitis





Clinical observation
Patient interview
Patient goals
Reproduction of symptoms
Length of symptoms

Evaluation
• ROM
• Strength


Grip
Parascapular
• Special tests


Handshake
Resisted middle finger lift off

Acute phase of rehabilitation:
“resting pain and easy provocation of
pain with ROM or functional activity”
• Reducing pain
• Facilitate tissue healing



Physical agents
Soft tissue mobilization
Orthotic intervention
• Counterforce band
• Wrist brace

Restorative phase of rehabilitation:
“pain has subsided and there is little
evidence of pain with active ROM or
light activity.”
• Gain flexibility, strength, endurance

Exercise
• eccentric

Work and Sport modification
• Lifting technique
• Gradual return to activity

Written instruction with realistic
expectation for length of healing and
plan for flares as they occur.
Ulnar nerve compression


Cubital tunnel vs. Ulnar Tunnel
(Guyan)
Observation of the hand
• Wartenberg
• Froment
• Claw


Evaluation
Tinels
Bent elbow
Strength
ROM
Tingling/numbness


Conservative management
Muscle length and myofascial
mobility
• Moist heat
• Ultrasound
• PROM
• kinesiotape

Neural mobilization
• Fix the adjacent joint
• Limit the ROM
• Oscillate proximal or distal to
compression
• Slow, rhythmic motion
• Symptom free

Orthotic intervention
• Elbow
• Wrist
• Finger (figure of 8)

Activity modification
• Avoiding positions that place stress on
the nerve
• Ergonomic considerations
• Body posture
