Do you struggle with lateral elbow pain? Do you feel like you may be just along for the ride waiting for natural recovery to kick in? Do you wonder why some of your "tennis elbow"/lateral elbow tendinopathy patients aren't getting better as quickly as you'd like?
If you said yes to any of these, you'll want to watch today's video.
You'll discover three key research-based tips to help you get your lateral elbow pain patients on track, including:
- How to make sure you've got an accurate diagnosis, and you're actually treating lateral elbow tendinopathy rather than another presentation
- Treatments you need to avoid like the plague, that will lead to worse outcomes
- Specific exercise instructions you can use with your patients - how much and how often should they get stuck into their strengthening exercises?
If you'd love some more info on how to assess and treat elbow pain, we've created an entire series of online courses that you can get access to with a free Clinical Edge trial membership HERE*.
