Lateral epicondylalgia (LE), more commonly known as tennis elbow, is the most common chronic musculoskeletal pain condition affecting the elbow, causing significant pain, disability and lost productivity. Despite decades of research investigating treatments and the underlying mechanisms of LE, it remains a challenging condition for therapists and researchers alike. This topical review outlines the prevalence, burden and risk factors associated with LE. Diagnosis, assessment and the principles of management are also presented.

- Define lateral epicondylalgia, and identify the anatomy involved, incidence and prevalence.
- Identify typical diagnostic and assessment approaches to confirm the diagnosis, and rule out other conditions.
- Determine appropriate outcome measures to use in evaluation and assist with assessing progress.
