Managing Lateral Epicondylalgia

Keys to this mini case
  • screen UQ Clinical Practice Patterns first
  • if improved, but not fully better, then check each joint in the neurodynamic test to see if the limb has the capacity to pass the test
    • i.e. each joint has full threat free passive OP in
      • shoulder abduction to 60
      • shoulder IR
      • elbow extension
      • forearm pronation
      • wrist flexion, ulnar deviation
      • finger, thumb flexion
  • use IASTM or EDGE Mobility Band to reduce threat in radial neurodynamics so patient can maintain the improvement with repeated cervical retraction and SB L plus neurodynamic sliders in radial bias
