Description

This course was written to help physical therapy and occupational therapy professionals understand, evaluate, and treat “tennis elbow” (lateral epicondylitis) and “golfer’s elbow” (medial epicondylitis) in the adult population. The course consists of a review of elbow and forearm anatomy as it relates to these two disorders, etiology and basic pathophysiology of epicondylitis and epicondylosis, signs and symptoms related to these tendinopathies, evaluation tips, differential diagnosis, and a variety of therapeutic treatment approaches. It also discusses when surgical intervention may be necessary, and the types of surgery most often performed, as well as post-surgical therapy care, long-term prognosis for the disorders, and preventing recurrence. In addition, the course presents an overview of radial tunnel syndrome as it relates to lateral epicondylitis. The course is designed to help therapists and therapy assistants achieve the best possible functional outcomes with patients, helping them meet functional goals that may even incorporate returning to sports such as tennis and golf.--------------------------------------------------------------------------*COURSE OBJECTIVES* After successfully completing this course, the therapist should be able to: • Define lateral and medial epicondylitis • Identify possible causes of the pathology • Recall the pathophysiology and etiology of the epicondylitis disorders • Recognize signs and symptoms that patients with these disorders typically exhibit • Recall standard methods used to diagnose these disorders • List interventions typically used to treat the disorders • Identify treatment approaches for managing epicondylitis • Recall the long-term prognosis of these tendinopathies • Recall surgical interventions and postoperative rehabilitation • Differentiate radial tunnel syndrome from lateral epicondylitis
