  • Objective: To describe and compare two ultrasonographic localization techniques for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis with extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT). Design: Forty-one subjects selected through clinical examination were randomly assigned to two groups of treatment. Interventions: Each subject received a three-session ultrasound-guided ESWT (performed weekly). Lateral tangential focusing was used in group A, whereas back tangential focusing was used for group B. Main outcome… CONTINUE READING
