Cozen’s Test
Test for lateral epicondylitis
The examiner stabilizes the patients elbow with his/her thumb while palpating the lateral epicondyle. The patient is then asked to actively make a fist, pronate his or her forearm as well as radially deviate and extend the wrist against a counterforce that is being applied by the examiner. A positive test would be the reproduction of pain near the lateral epicondyle.
