The purpose of our paper was to analyze existing research that discusses the effectiveness and safety of dry needling (DN) in the treatment of lateral epicondylitis (LE). Current research and clinical practice support the use of DN to treat tendinopathies. Our hypothesis is that DN combined with traditional physical therapy (PT) interventions will be the most effective intervention in treating LE. We hypothesize that it is a safe treatment if utilized appropriately by certified DN clinicians.
