Abstract

Lateral epicondylitis associated with cumulative trauma as seen in the clinical setting has usually involved long-term care with fair results. This paper describes the structured treatment program for lateral epicondylitis developed at the Michigan Hand Rehabilitation Center in Warren, Michigan. Results of the program, as reflected in five cases, have been a decrease in treatment time and a high incidence of return to work with no symptoms or reduced symptoms.
