Core Tip An effective treatment approach in the management of lateral elbow tendinopathy (LET) is an exercise programme. Exercise programme improves patients’ symptoms but the ideal exercise protocol for the management of LET is still under investigation. Exercise programme as a sole treatment approach does not respond positively in many patients with LET. Thus, physiotherapists combine exercise programme with other physiotherapy techniques like electrotherapy, manual therapy, taping/bracing and acupuncture. Research to determine which treatment approach combined with exercise programme will provide the best results in the management of LET is needed.
