Abstract: Background & Objectives: Lateral epicondylitis (LE) is most common lesion of the elbow affecting the tendinous origin of the wrist extensors especially extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB). Dominant arm is commonly affected with prevalence of 1-3% in the general population but increases to 19% at 30-60 years of age. Treatment for LE includes medical, surgical & physiotherapy management, which also includes Mulligan movement with mobilization (MMWM) and Cyriax physiotherapy.Methods: The study included 60 patients which fulfilled inclusion criteria and thereby was randomly assigned into 2 groups, 30 in each group through random sampling method. Group A was treated with Cyriax physiotherapy and Group B by MMWM.Results: The result of the study was assessed using VAS for the pain and HHD for hand grip. At the end of 4 weeks treatment, both groups showed a significant reduction in the pain level and an improvement in the grip strength, but the efficacy of MMWM was more effective in relieving pain and improving grip strength when compared to Cyriax physiotherapy.Conclusions: In this study, the mean score in case of VAS is less and the mean score in case of HHD is high for MMWM as compared to Cyriax physiotherapy. The MMWM is better treatment than Cyriax physiotherapy in treating Lateral Epicondylitis.
