Three studies have shown pain reduction and improvement in subjective function with NSAID iontophoresis (using diclofenac or pirprofen [not available in the United States]) after two to four weeks.15,20 There is no good evidence supporting the use of corticosteroid iontophoresis.15,20 One meta-analysis and one systematic review found limited evidence against the use of electromagnetic field therapy.5,20, Ultrasonography is thought to have thermal and mechanical effects on the target tissue leading to increased metabolism, circulation, extensibility of connective tissue, and tissue regeneration.23 The best available data suggest that ultrasonography provides modest pain reduction over one to three months.15,19–21 Exercise appears to be more effective than ultrasonography for pain relief.15,19 Combining ultrasonography with deep transverse friction massage or corticosteroids is no better than ultrasonography alone.15,22, Deep transverse friction massage is thought to realign abnormal collagen fiber structure, break up adhesions and scar tissue, and increase healing with hyperemia.22 There is insufficient evidence to form conclusions about deep transverse friction massage for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis.22, A consensus statement from the National Institutes of Health states that study results are promising enough to consider acupuncture as an appropriate option for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis.24 However, conflicting evidence exists, and recommendations for or against this therapy cannot be made.
