Description:

This course is a comprehensive survey of the evaluation and treatment of lateral epicondylosis. Topics covered will include evidence-informed best practices for use and dosage of exercise, orthotics, counter-force bracing, manual therapy and soft tissue mobilization. Treating the injured athlete and facilitating return to sport will be explored, as well as treatment of patients from all walks of life. Participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice taping techniques, mobilization with movement, cross-friction massage, cupping and IASTM.
