The intensity and duration of repeated tasks in occupational or leisure settings set the stage for chronic strain injuries, such as lateral epicondylitis. Healthcare professionals can expect to see patients with related complaints in a variety of settings and can also expect to see this type of injury among colleagues. Knowledge of the signs and symptoms and potential situations that can lead to this condition will enable clinicians to help patients and themselves to develop preventive measures and to seek appropriate evidence-based treatment.


The goal of this continuing education module is to update advanced practice providers’, nurses’ and physicians' knowledge about lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify causes of lateral epicondylitis, its cardinal symptoms, and people who are at risk for developing it
  • Identify common invasive and noninvasive diagnostic procedures associated with lateral epicondylitis
  • Relate three accepted methods of treatment for lateral epicondylitis
