Lesson Plan

A Cerebral Approach to a Multi-faceted Problem Have you ever been frustrated with management of tennis elbow?  Does it seem no matter what you do your outcomes vary from case to case?  If so, you are not alone!  In this one-hour webinar we will take an evidence based clinical reasoning approach to a difficult clinical condition.  We will explore traditional and non-traditional intervention approaches based on an individualized assessment of each case.  We will discuss how a “one size fits all” approach in no approach at all.  In the last segment we will demonstrate some of those interventions in a live demonstration then be open for questions and answers.  If you are looking for some new insight on an old problem, then this webinar is for you.

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize the clinical definition of Tennis Elbow.
  • Discuss the clinical presentation of “itis”, “osis” and “opathy”.
  • Demonstrate provocative testing and discuss differential diagnosis for Tennis Elbow.
  • Explore evidence-based treatment options for Tennis Elbow.
  • Provide a proposed intervention algorithm for management of chronic lateral epicondylosis.
