Background: Lateral epicondylitis, also known as “tennis elbow” is an overuse tendinopathy of the common extensor origin at the elbow due to repetitive movements of the wrist and forearm. The repeated motions and stress to the tissue results in injury of the tendons at  the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. A normal Tendon is exposed to optimised load, which causes adaptation. An inappropriate load to the tendon or an unloaded tendon leads to stress shielding where normal loading or excessive loading provokes Tendinopathy.Tendon Neuroplasticity training involves strength training and external pacing, which helps in developing good motor control and sufficient muscle capacity to perform a task.

Materials and Method: In this study 24 Badminton players with tennis elbow were selected and divided into two groups Group A with 12 players underwent Conventional therapy and strengthening exercise and Group B with 12 players underwent Tendon Neuroplasticity training along with conventional physiotherapy for 4 weeks.

Results: The Statistical Analysis showed a significant reduction of Pain after Tendon Neuroplasticity Training (NPRS: p < 0.05;) and improvement in Hand Grip (Hand held dynamometer: p<0.05;)

Conclusion: The study is concluded that Tendon neuroplasticity training along with conventional therapy reduces Pain and improves Hand grip strength

Keywords: Lateral Epicondylitis, tendon neuroplasticity training, pain, grip strength
