Lateral elbow pain or "Tennis Elbow" is a common musculoskeletal condition. Clinicians are often challenged by the clinical assessment and subsequent diagnosis of this condition. This course takes you through the pathophysiological model of Tennis Elbow and explores its clinical presentation and the related evidence-based diagnostic tools.
This course aims to introduce the multifactorial nature of Tennis Elbow, the case presentation often seen in physiotherapy clinics, and the evidence base for evaluation and assessment tools.
