dc.description.abstract Abstract Background: Lateral Epicondylitis can often be effectively treated in a primary care environment. In Lateral Epicondylitis daily activities and occupation are hampered because of severe pain and dysfunction. It is not a cause of disability, pain may limit productivity. Objectives of the study: The objectives were to find out the functional outcome in lateral epicondylitis. Methodology: It was a quasi- experimental, pretestposttest design of quantitative research. In this research, total 18 participants were selected and data was collected by using convenience sampling method. Patients were allocated for 6 weeks treatment sessions. The assessment was done again on a post- test on the same group by the same scales and changes between pre and posttest of the same groups were compared. Pain and dysfunction was measured by scale; Numerical pain rated scale (NPRS), Patient rated tennis elbow evaluation (PRTEE). Result and Discussion: In this study, the result shows significant improvement of Pain (At rest, doing a task, carrying bag of groceries, at its worst) (P<0.05) and functional disability (p<0.05). However, Physiotherapy treatment was more effective, especially for the outcomes of lessening symptom severity and pain reduction.Conclusion: Therefore, hypothesis can be proved that 6 weeks Physiotherapy intervention was effective in treating patients resulted in better outcomes. For long term effectiveness, the treatment program should be started as early as possible as part of the best practice for Lateral epicondylitis patients. Key words: Outcomes, Dysfunction, Frequency of physical therapy, Lateral epicondylitis. en_US
