Among case the mean age of the participants was 42.1 % years and control group was 57.9%. The frequency of lateral epicondylitis was highest in between the 31-40 Years that is 41.20% (n=21). A total of 50 participants 11 (42.3%) of the cases were male and 14 (58.3%) were female whereas 15 (57.7%) of the controls were male and 10 (41.7%) were female. 3.90% of the affected respondents have at least some primary education. The factors significantly associated with the development of lateral epicondylitis were overuse hand (OR 1.23; 95%CI, .347-.4371), Weight lifting by hand (OR 1.195; 95%CI, .315-3.174.12), Repetitive movement of elbow (OR 1.01; 95%CI, .330-3.033), Type of pain (OR .722; 95%CI, .235-2.215) & Notice pain (OR 3.77; 1.170-12.194).Conclusion: The important way for prevention of lateral epicondylitis including the modification of over use of hand, weight lifting & repetitive movement for reduce risk factors and it is also important to take comprehensive preventive measures like sports by modification of the working position and correction the hand during playing and the daily living activities. en_US
