Lateral elbow pain is a very common problem that presents to our clinics in great numbers. Many of these cases have been present for long periods of time, some have gone to other therapies without success, and some involve time off work costing companies and individuals thousands. Although there is a tremendous amount of research available on this topic, there is no consensus on how to manage it. This talk will present a summary of current literature on lateral elbow pain, assessment, and treatment. Discussion and demonstration will be performed on treatment techniques. Assessment forms will be provided to assist with management of these patients. Individuals will leave with ideas on how to manage these patients the next clinic day.

Target Audience: Occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, occupational therapy students.

Presented by: 

Lisa Perrone, OTR/L, CHT, CKTP
