Abstract
Unilateral elbow pain results in sensori-motor dysfunction that is frequently bilateral, affects local and remote upper limb muscles and persists beyond resolution of local tendon symptoms. These characteristics suggest supraspinal involvement. Here we investigated i) the excitability and organisation of the M1 representation of the wrist extensor muscles and ii) the relationship between M1 changes and clinical outcomes in lateral epicondylalgia (LE; n=11) and healthy control subjects (n=11).
