Physiotherapy management of Lateral epicondylalgia (LE)

Symptoms of LE include pain and disability and may persist for many years, and recurrence is common

LE is typically diagnosed by the presence of pain over the lateral humeral epicondyle that may radiate distally. The pain is often aggravated by palpation, gripping and resisted wrist and/or second or third finger extension. Exercise has been shown to be one of the most effective treatment options; in case of a chronic pain condition, the approach should be more in line with management or persistent or chronic pain.
