A new exercise for tennis elbow that works!

N Am J Sports Phys Ther. 2010 Sep;5(3):189-93.


Eccentric exercise has been effectively used in the management of tendinopathies in multiple regions of the body. Lateral epicondylosis ("tennis elbow") is a common tendinopathy that has shown improvement following treatment utilizing isokinetic eccentric exercise. A novel exercise was developed for home-based eccentric exercise that has shown promise for use with patients with lateral epicondylosis. Clinicians should be aware of this exercise and consider it as an evidence-based intervention.
