Title: Current concepts in conservative management of tennis elbow
Author: Gottschalk, Andrew W.
Date: 2010-04
Publisher: Family Physicians Inquiries Network
Citation: Evidence Based Practice 13(4): 03-04.
Abstract: In a 2002 RCT of multiple lateral humeral epicondyle tendinopathy treatments, the control arm of the study found that a “wait-and-see” approach had an 83% (49/59) success rate at 52 weeks. “Wait-and-see” was minimal intervention, including only sharing the diagnosis, recommending avoidance of painful activities, and providing dosing for over-the-counter oral analgesics. Success was defined as a score of 1 or 2 on a 6-point Likert symptoms scale (in which “1” = completely recovered, and “6” = much worse).
