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).
