URL with Digital Object Identifier
© Springer Science+Business Media New York 2015. Tennis elbow is a term commonly used when referring to lateral epicondylosis (LE). Le is believed to result from repetitive overuse and microtrauma, which leads to degenerative changes at the common extensor tendon origin. Nonoperative treatment is considered the main treatment approach. It is imperative for clinicians to understand the pathophysiology of this condition, so an evidence-based rehabilitation regime can be implemented. This chapter will provide the reader with an in-depth review of the various therapeutic treatments described in the literature and their efficacy. This will allow the clinician to apply a systematic evidence-based treatment approach. This chapter also includes a description of a validated, reliable outcome measure which can be used by researchers and clinicians in order to determine the effectiveness of the various therapeutic interventions.
