Evidence-based chiropractors are well suited to recognize and manage lateral epicondylitis. In fact, we often jump to the diagnosis within seconds of hearing the patient’s history. Unfortunately, not all pain near the lateral epicondyle is simply from tennis elbow. Over ten percent of patients who are diagnosed with tennis elbow don’t have tennis elbow. Radial tunnel syndrome can mimic or even coexist with lateral epicondylitis and recognizing this presentation will afford better clinical outcomes.
Take our seven-question quiz to test your knowledge of radial tunnel syndrome. At the end you’ll have the opportunity to download our latest e-guide so you never miss this presentation again!
