Dr. Rohde explains how tennis elbow is diagnosed.

Dr. Rohde:
Tennis elbow generally is diagnosed by physical examination. People have tenderness right where those tendons insert. They may have pain with, what we call resisted wrist extension, or use of those muscles that insert there. X-ray usually is not needed. MRI usually is not needed to diagnose tennis elbow.
